LINCOLN PUBLIC UBRARYM/ 3 4864 00181 4788 LINCOLN 1996 COVER: Something old, something new As we move towards the next century, it became self-evident that our Public Safety Building (top photo), constructed in 1958, needed substantial modernization to keep up with current codes and technology. The renovations and additions (shown in the model photo at the bottom) will achieve our current needs, while preserving within the new complex usable portions of the old structure. We wish to thank the Public Safety Building Committee and al! Town boards and citizens of Lincoln for their support and help in the design process.

Delori John S. Kerr, II Peter C. Sugar, Chair As we move forward into yet another year, let us reflect on our current status. It could be called "work in progress". Why so? Let us speak of 'progress' first. We are making progress, though it is never entirely perceptible. Change comes in increments and only by looking at a grouping of years can we note that change has indeed occurred from start to finish. In our town, progress can be represented by the way we have managed to overcome recent differences of opinion, which were threatening at one time to tear us apart. Following the Task Force report on Town Governance of 1994, we have been actively engaged in implementation of its proposals and other work. We held a very successful and well attended 'Spring Board 1996', a meeting of town leaders, to examine governing procedures in bringing issues forth, and conducting our affairs in an open, respectful and, most importantly, lawful manner. We have also helped the Moderator's meetings gather representatives of all our boards and committees in one place-to look more closely at actual and current problems we are facing, again with the purpose of ensuring that all parties who have input on any given topic can and will be a part of the resolution. Topics we have looked at include low and moderate income housing, the Codman Community Farm and the location of the Post Office. All of these issues are ongoing, but the continuing dialog is the key. We are also beginning to come to closure on overhauling and replacing our outdated facilities. The renovation and reconstruction of Smith and Brooks Schools was completed this year, symbolically celebrated by the 'butterfly' weathervane atop the belltower, the design of one of our students, its linkage to the past assured by the old bell within the tower. The new Public Safety Building is going into construction — though not before we held several public outreach meetings and a Special Town Meeting last December to reaffirm the appropriateness of the design and its budget. We are also looking at the Public Safety equipment: at our police cruisers, fire engines and ambulance. Our public safety staff is ably led by Chief Allen Bowles, and we have recently promoted Captain Goddard to the position of Deputy Fire Chief. We are conducting a survey of our infrastructure in the context of a long-term maintenance plan. Some of our drainage systems and structures are in need of repair and we are taking steps to study the immediate and long range implications. We have also sought engineering help to develop a roadway maintenance and pavement management program. Similarly we are considering all our town facilities from a single maintenance perspective. Let us emphasize that, like our own homes, we cannot afford to allow our properties to decline by inadequate maintenance; also to be added is the need to keep abreast of current thinking and practice. We should not be shy in declaring that, through the years, Lincoln as a community has always been in the forefront with its search for, and putting into practice of, new ideas. There are further challenges: traffic is one: it proceeds inexorably through our town, disrupting our lives and making it difficult at times for our own citizens to move about. There is no short term solution; our Traffic Committee is working diligently with our police to devise ways to meet the challenge; we have allocated special funds for speed and traffic regulation enforcement, though we must recognize that some of the solutions lie outside our total control. Only by working with the surrounding communities in the greater metropolitan Boston area, which in our case are the towns in our immediate vicinity, will we be able, hopefully, to resolve this problem. We are a part of MAGIC (Minuteman Advisory Group on Interlocal Coordination, a sub-unit of the regional planning agency), and these problems are a subject of continuing discussions. Trash: we are a part of NESWC (North East Solid Waste Committee), though the agreement drawn up in 1985 has turned out to be highly disadvantageous to all the towns within the arrangement. We are soldiering on to make the best of a bad situation and come to the end of this particular chapter, started in all good conscience to ensure the quality of our environment. Housing: we continue to give support to our citizens in the residential developments at Lincoln Woods and Battle Road Farms, as they grapple with a host of financial and other problems. Staffing: several years ago we were forced to cut some of our staff to preserve our budgets. Efficiencies have been gained but we should acknowledge that we could not have succeeded without the collaboration of our staff. This collaboration continues — we are in the process of negotiating a new round of collective bargaining agreements with our unions, rewarding their hard work, while still controlling the overall increase in costs. This extends not only to the salary line items but also the restructuring of the employee health insurance. The employee groups worked with the town through a specially-appointed insurance committee in developing a cost-effective program which resulted in a $60-70,000 annual saving. We thank all our dedicated staff who are working with us in achieving our goals. Our Town Engineer, Frank Emmons, retired this year after a long service. Here again, rather than replacing him, we have developed an agreement with the Town of Concord to share the engineering services for a savings to us of $25,000. Computers are another key in saving labor costs and allowing the better use of our staff, while providing us with the tools to run the town's business in an efficient manner befitting our impending entry into the next century. Our upgrade of computer equipment is on target within a five-year development plan. Nor should we overlook our collaboration with the Finance Committee and School Committees in developing sound and fiscally responsible budgets and helping to keep the rising tax rates within reasonable bounds. We should also acknowledge the Moderator's recently appointed Capital Planning Committee, who are looking ahead several years to bring some order and thoughtful forecasting to major town expenditures. Then there is HATS — the Hanscom Area Towns Study-to keep an eye on the Hanscom Airfield and Massport. Massport is continuing its efforts to develop the airfield for general aviation and would seriously impact our suburbia but for our continued vigilance and active cooperative work with the other three towns: Lexington, Concord and Bedford, to bring maximum pressure on Massport for some reasonable compromise. It is good to report that all our local representatives are "on board", now augmented by Lincoln's recently-elected Susan Fargo to the State Senate (replacing Cile Hicks, who has been so helpful to us in the past). We are facing other issues, along Route 2, currently at Crosby's Corner, where the intended flyover could be a serious disruption to our citizens on both sides of the road. We achieved some wonderful collaboration among our residents and have succeeded in having the effort recognized by the Massachusetts Highway Department, as it works towards the final design of the intersection. Let us again emphasize the communal nature of this effort, within the auspices of CAC (Corridor Advisory Committee), working together with our neighbors in Concord and Acton. Somewhat peripherally, but no less importantly, is the newly planned bicycle path along Bedford Road, north of Route 2, involving a crossing of Route 2 with the consequent and necessary reworking of the traffic light 'intervals'. Another bicycle path, along Route 117, west of Route 126, is also in the development stages. It would be appropriate here to mention the Minuteman National Historical Park, where a new pathway has been dedicated during the past year. Let us now address 'work'. It will be clear that all the progress we have made could not have been accomplished without work: work by our citizen volunteers and our town staff and employees. The effort is considerable and arduous. We are fortunate in having an excellent corps of staff and employees, led by our very able Executive Secretary, Police and Fire Chief, Public Works Director and many others. This effort is augmented by the numerous volunteers of our town who give so generously of their time for the benefit of our community, to whom we must be forever grateful. Which brings us to what makes Lincoln so special. We are, to continue to emphasize this, a community with a strong rural and agricultural history and ties to the very beginnings of our country, a community which has moved into the twentieth century and now contains a large contingent of professional residents. This has resulted in a unique mix of people: young and old, farming and business, artistic, creative, socially conscious but, above all, supportive and neighborly. It is this mix which we must protect: how we do this will finally determine whether we survive as a community as we have come to know and love it. It is only by working together and involving as many of us, as we are able (the 'Lincoln Way'), that we can succeed. Failing to recognize and confront the many challenges on a daily basis can only magnify these problems in the long term. We thank you for your support and help in our work and urge your continuing involvement with our heartfelt appreciation. John B.

Zuelke The Town Clerk is the official recorder of town events and activities and issues licenses and certificates. The duties include recording the proceedings at Town Meetings and Elections, and notifying the Selectmen and other officers concerned with appropriations which have been voted. As chief election official the Town Clerk oversees the preparation of all elections, administers campaign finance laws, certifies nomination papers and initiative petitions, and prepares the official election results for the Secretary of State. The Clerk supervises voter registrations, conducts the annual town census, prepares the street list, voters list, school list, and furnishes the jury list to the Office of the Jury Commissioner. In 1996 the Town purchased a new ballot box and optical scanning voting system. This replaced the punch card voting system the town had used since 1976. The optical scanning system was used for the September State Primary and the November State Election and was found to be a great benefit in counting ballots. Presidential Primary March 5, 1996 Pursuant to a Warrant duly served, the Polls were declared open at 7:00 a.m. by Nancy J. Zuelke, Town Clerk, who was assisted throughout the day by the following wardens: Tom Coan, Peggy Elliott, Marshall Sandock, and Larry Zuelke. The Polls were declared closed at 8:00 p.m. by Mrs. Zuelke. The total number of votes cast was 747, which was divided as follows: Precinct 1A (Congressional District 7): Republican - 549, Democratic 178, Libertarian - 0, for a total of 565; Precinct 1B (Congressional District 5): Republican - 16, Democratic - 4, Libertarian - 0, for a total of 20.

SUMMARY This proposed law would prohibit the use of certain traps for fur-bearing mammals, prohibit certain methods of hunting bear and bobcat, and eliminates some restrictions on who may serve on the State Fisheries and Wildlife Board. The proposed law would prohibit the use, setting, manufacture, or possession of any trap to capture fur- bearing mammals, except common mouse and rat traps, nets, and box or cage traps that confine a whole animal without grasping any part of it. Traps designed to grip an animal's body or body part, such as steel jaw leghold traps, padded leghold traps, and snares, would be prohibited. Federal and state health officials could use such traps in case of a threat to human health or safety. Where a property owner had reasonably tried but failed to correct an animal problem on the property 42 using a legal trap, the owner could apply for and the State Director of Fisheries and Wildlife could issue a permit to use a prohibited type of trap, except a leghold trap, for up to 30 days to correct the problem. A person violating any of these requirements could be punished by a fine of between $300 and $1000, or imprisonment for up to 6 months, or both, for each prohibited trap and each day of violation. A person convicted for second violation would be required to surrender, and could never again obtain any trapping license or problem animal control permit. The proposed law would also prohibit the pursuit or hunting of bear or bobcat with the aid of a dog or dogs. Hunting bear using any type of bait, lure, or attraction, or knowingly hunting bear in a baited area, would also be prohibited. The Director could allow the use of dogs or bait in legitimate scientific research projects and in order to control particular animals that posed a threat to human safety or that destroyed livestock, property or crops. Violators could be punished by a fine of between $300 and $1000, or imprisonment, or both, for each violation. A person convicted for a second violation would be required to surrender, and could never again obtain, any hunting and dog training licenses and permits. The proposed law would eliminate the requirement that five members of the State Fisheries and Wildlife Board have held sporting licenses in the State for five consecutive years and that four members represent fishing, hunting, and trapping interests. The proposed law states that if any of its provisions were declared invalid, the other provisions would remain in effect. A yes vote would prohibit the use of certain traps for fur-bearing mammals, prohibit certain methods of hunting bear or bobcat and eliminate some restrictions on who may serve on the Fisheries and Wildlife Board. A no vote would make no change in the trapping or hunting laws, and would retain restrictions on who may serve on the Fisheries and Wildlife Board.

Marsh William M. Stason L. Bruce Long Jr., Chairman The Board of Assessors has continued the work of updating our computer systems and records. Highlights of this past year include: In 1994 the Town of Lincoln adopted Ch. 653 Sec. 40 of the Acts of 1989. This provision altered the timing of assessment of new construction to allow the assessors to tax property based on the percentage of completion on June 30. This provision became effective in FY 1996. The effect of this change was to allow the assessors to value construction based on the percentage of completion on June 30 as though it was completed on January 1, 1996. The completion of a "full measure and list" for the Town of Lincoln. The Board of Assessors hired an appraisal firm during 1996 to update records for all properties in town. Over 80% of the homes in Lincoln were visited, measurements were taken, features of each property were listed, and our records were updated. Many homes had not been visited in over 10 years, and there were a great number of changes which resulted. The simplification of the assessing map by reducing the number of land classifications from the 27 categories developed for the original computer system into 9 categories. The new map relies more on lot size and location within the town and not on style of home. The Assessors examined several new "value influences", including setback, views, wetlands and adjacency to conservation lands. Data was collected for properties with panoramic or water views, and this information was applied to the valuations. Further study will continue on the other influences including cooperation with the Conservation Commission on wetlands issues. The Board of Assessors has purchased new computer hardware to improve our analysis capabilities. Much of this hardware was purchased to improve ease of use for taxpayer access of files. Existing data files are being converted for use with upgraded software. This long awaited upgrade will enable the Board to "query" individual data fields and greatly improve our analytic capabilities. The tax bills for FY 1997 were issued on-time. Helen Ryan retired after 10 years of dedicated service to the Town of Lincoln. Marcia Nonni joined the professional assessing staff as Administrative Assistant. Much work remains to be done: In the upcoming year we will be working with the state Department of Revenue in the triennial review and recertification of our assessing department. This review of all values in Lincoln will require a great deal of work on the part of our professional staff. The Board of Assessors will be working with its Assessing Task Force to examine the value of sophisticated statistical methodologies for improving correlation between assessed values and market prices. This task force held its first meeting in November of 1996 and has begun laying the framework for improving our analysis capabilities. 57 The task force will begin its work in earnest this winter. We were pleased to find residents of Lincoln with superb professional qualifications who were willing to serve on this task force. We are working with other boards in Lincoln to improve our mapping capabilities, to define wetland's boundaries and to help to alleviate the tax burden for our elderly. The Board of Assessors maintains the largest database of information about the town. We hope to be able to make this database available to the boards and volunteers of Lincoln to improve decision making throughout the town. 58 Board of Assessors Recap of Fiscal Year 1997 Valuation Taxable Real Estate Personal Property Exempt Property TOTAL $886,185,753 13,749,750 147,384,400 $1,047,319,906 Appropriations and Assessment s $16,756,193.77 234,661.00 100,000.00 Town Appropriations State and County Charges Overlay TOTAL $17,090,854.77 Estimated Receipts Cherry Sheet Receipts Over Estimates Cherry Sheet Local Estimated Receipts Free Cash Available Funds TOTAL $2,155,169.00 9,518.00 1,617,535.92 940,178.00 1,092,262.00 $5,814,662.92 Net Amount to Raise $11,276,191.85 Taxes for countv.

We emerged in Spring relieved and satisfied that we had successfully dealt with the problems created and met the challenge. A number of issues have been targeted as being of importance to the department as well as the community to include increased training of personnel, vehicle and equipment maintenance, and traffic enforcement. All police officers attended 40 hours of in-service training sponsored by the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council. Firearms qualification was carried out in July and we are appreciative to the Town of Lexington Police Department for the use of their range. Line and administrative officers attended courses and seminars dealing with arson, domestic violence, juvenile justice, breathalyzer certification, professional development, and administrative issues. Firefighters, both full-time and call members of the department, continued in their pursuit of the Nationally recognized Firefighter I - II rating. Course material presented under the direction of the Massachusetts Fire Academy included Live Fire, Structural Fire Fighting, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and Hose Use and Care. Michael Murphy of the Conservation Department updated personnel on the trail system, access issues, and any new markings. Additionally, firefighters Frank Gray and Paul Domenichella traveled to Maryland and the National Fire Academy for a weekend seminar on Emergency Medical Services -- Incident Command. (To date 5 full-time and 2 call firefighters have gained F.F. I - II certification, and 1 call firefighter obtained F.F. I certification.) Dispatcher Tom Hennessey attended a nationally sponsored program at Northeastern University gaining certification in emergency dispatch procedures. All full-time dispatch personnel are now E-911 certified and have attended a nationally recognized program. Dispatcher Shirley Foley attended Dean College completing a course in sign language enabling us to better deal with the hearing impaired community. Annual continuing education for EMT certified police officers and firefighters continues. Presently ten police officers, nine full-time and eight call firefighters provide emergency medical services for the community along with paramedics based at Emerson Hospital, available 24 hours a day. Engine 3 was returned to service in early December having gone through a refurbishment as a part of our capital plan. Efforts are presently underway to establish a vehicle maintenance officer within the Fire Department to upgrade and maintain a maintenance system coordinating with apparatus repair specialists and D.P.W. mechanics. In August the Fire Department took delivery of a new ambulance replacing that which had provided 1 1 years of service. In our efforts to continue our community involvement we have police officers and firefighters in the Public School System with the support of Supt. Mark McQuillan and his staff. Program presentations include Drug Awareness Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.), Teen Dating Violence, and Student Awareness Fire Education (S.A.F.E.). As a result of public input and the support from the Board of Selectmen and the Traffic Committee, police presence on the roadways has increased. 63 This past year the Police and Fire Departments and Town were recipients of a variety of grants in support of the D.A.R.E and S.A.F.E. programs, Community Policing, and Underground Storage Tank removals at the Fire and Police Facility and Bemis Hall. We also benefited from the generosity and good will of others to include Boy Scout Troop 127, Cranberry Hill Associates, Inc./Lincoln North, and individual Lincoln Residents with in-kind and financial contributions totaling close to $20,000. Many changes took place this year in new personnel coming on board. In February Michael LeBlanc joined Public Safety as an additional full-time dispatcher coming to us from the Stoneham Fire Department. On October 1 st Officer Richard Hallett retired from the Police Department after 34 years of service with the department. His position was filled with Sean Kennedy formerly with the South Portland Maine Police Dept. and a part-time employee with the Town of Lincoln prior to that. In August the community was impacted with a serious fire at the Codman Community Farms. If it were not for the excellent initial attack by Lincoln Firefighters, the response of neighboring communities, as a result of mutual aid requests, the cooperation of Codman Community Farm employees and members, the Department of Public Works and the Water Department, along with volunteers including residents, contractors and Drumlin Farm, the loss could have been greater. The end result was a repairable structure with no serious injury or loss of life. Closing out the year, effective on December 1 st Captain Richard Goddard was promoted to Deputy Chief of the Fire Department to better facilitate the changes and administrative demands within the fire service. I thank all those who over the year have assisted and cooperated with the Fire and Police Departments to include committees, Boards, departments and residents and look forward to our continuing partnership. 64 FIRE DEPARTMENT The following is a report of the activities of the Lincoln Fire Department for the calendar year 1 996: Accidents Responded To 115 Ambulance Runs 237 Ambulance Transports 198 Brush Fires 15 Building Fires 21 False Alarms 73 Investigations 97 Lock-outs (Vehicle & Property) 121 Vehicle Fires 8 Mutual Aid Responses 67 Reports of Outside Burning 15 Special Services 47 Water Problems 2 Wires Down/Arcing 47 Inspections 148 Fire Drills 75 65 PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING COMMITTEE Kenneth Bassett Chief Allen Bowles Timothy S. Higgins Morris Levy Hugo Liepmann Neil Middleton Earl D. Midgley David Whalen Joseph Robbat, Jr., Chairman The Public Safety Building Committee (Committee) completed the design development phase of its work in 1996 and, after construction documents were completed in the early fall, bids were requested and submitted. Unfortunately, the bids came in over budget, and after some discussion, the Selectmen agreed to call a special Town Meeting for the night of December 10, 1996. At the special Town Meeting, the Selectmen requested a $230,000 transfer from Free Cash to partially cover the shortfall. The remaining shortfall, $110,000, will be included in appropriate warrant articles at the 1997 Annual Town Meeting. The Committee explained at the meeting that the primary causes for the shortfall are construction cost escalation greater than anticipated and time delays. The special Town Meeting voted in favor of the warrant article and the groundbreaking for the project shall begin in late winter of 1997 and be completed in about eighteen months. 56 BUILDING DEPARTMENT Jane Barnet, Administrative Assistant Kenneth A. Desmond, Wiring Inspector Russell J. Dixon, Plumbing Inspector Earl D. Midgley, Building Inspector This year saw much activity in Town. Battle Road Farm is complete and this New England "village" is a great addition to Lincoln. DeCordova made major improvements and will soon begin the final phase with a new entryway and elevator.

N. Frederick Mansfield, M. D. Craig Donaldson, M. D., Chair The Board of Health meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. and more often as needed, with all meetings open to the public. Citizens wishing to be placed on the agenda should call Jane Barnet at Town Offices (259-2613) by the Thursday prior to the meeting if possible. Septic plans presented for review should be submitted to the Concord Board of Health 5 days before the next meeting. This year Frank Emmons, agent for the Board, retired and a decision was made not to fill the position. Instead, the Town has contracted with the Concord Board of Health for services previously provided by Mr. Emmons and John Devine, Sanitarian. Mike Moore and Stan Sonsnicki now witness soil tests and review plans for septic systems as well as Sanitarian inspections. The Board is very pleased with these arrangements and looks forward to continued sharing with our neighboring town. Reports of Board Activities: 1 . Enforcement of Title V of the State Environmental Code: The State mandates examinations of sites for sewage and septage disposal, issuance of permits, holding hearings, and granting of variances. Summary of activities is as follows: Site investigations witnessed (percolation tests and test pits) 67 Septic system plans reviewed and approved 43 Installers permits issued 23 Septage handlers licenses issued 7 Fees collected by the Board were as follows: Soil Test Witnessing $1 0,050.00 Plan Review 7,200.00 Disposal Installers Licenses 1,150.00 Septage Handler Licenses 470.00 Food Service Permits 185.00 Total $19,055.00 69 2. Sanitarian inspections: The Sanitarian helped the Board enforce health regulations according to Chapter X of the State Sanitary Code. Regular inspections of food service establishments in Lincoln performed during the year, including restaurants and food service facilities in stores, schools, institutions, farm stands, as well as several facilities at Hanscom Field. The Codman Pool and Bathhouse, and the pool at Bunsai Gakuen College were also inspected periodically by the Sanitarian as were the three day camps and Farrington Memorial. Any complaints of possible food contamination are also investigated by the Sanitarian. 3. Flu Clinic: Again this year, members of the Board of Health and The School/Town Nurse conducted a Flu Clinic, held in October sponsored by the Council on Aging. This year Theresa Manning kindly volunteered her nursing services to help administer the inoculations to the 336 individuals who attended the clinic. Cindy Anthony also provided flu shots to some of Lincoln's homebound elderly. A one dollar voluntary contribution was requested of those receiving shots. 4. School Health Program: The School/Town nurse and the two Health Aides continued to play an important role in supporting and protecting optimal health at the public school campus. Dr. Stephen Jenkins served ably as school physician and Cindy Anthony has continued her active involvement in health teaching. The school health personnel are as follows: Cynthia Anthony, R.N., School/Town Nurse Anne Marie Mahoney, School Health Aide Laurel DiMatteo, School Health Aide Stephen Jenkins, M.D., School Physician 5. Summary of Eliot Community Mental Health Center Activities: This facility provides services to Lincoln residents and includes an outpatient clinic, geriatric, mental retardation, and therapeutic preschool programs. In 1996 there were 296 direct service contacts for Lincoln residents. Nine towns participate in funding these services and Lincoln's contribution to the Mental Health Center in 1996 was $5,000. 70 6. Report of the East Middles Mosquito Control Project: The East Middles Mosquito Control Project conducts a program in Lincoln consisting of mosquito and wetland serveillance, water management and public education. Lincoln's cost for the Project in 1996 was $8,520. The goal of the surveillance program is to target mosquito breeding areas and to monitor changes in the adult mosquito population with particular regard to possible emergence of equine encephalitis. Three sites in Lincoln are monitored and held to determine the need for control.These sites are behind 58 Conant Road, 80 Tower Road below the Tower Road Well, and Mackintosh Lane by the pipeline. Frank Emmons was the Board's representative to the Project and, upon his retirement, Dr. Mansfield assumed this responsibility. 7. Summary of Animal Inspector's Activities: One of the Animal Inspector's responsibilities is to supply the Massachusetts Department of Food and Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Health and Dairying, with a list of animal owners, the number of livestock, and general health of animals in town. 8. A compilation of the 1 996 animal census is as follows: Number of Dairy Herds (one animal constitutes a herd) Number of Beef Herds ( " Number of Swine Herds ( Number of Horses Number of Ponies Number of Donkeys Number of Mules Number of Sheep Number of Goats Number of Llamas Number of Poultry Number of Peacocks ") 16 32 35 77 12 1 2 105 12 10 384 3 71 Any dog known to have bitten a person must, by law, be quarantined for a period of 10 days in order to be observed for signs of rabies, and the findings thereof sent to the State Bureau of Animal Health and Dairying where they are kept on file for 7 years. Out-of-state cattle entering Massachusetts must have their ear tag numbers recorded and forwarded to the State. If complaints arise with regard to the health of any livestock, the Animal Inspector investigates the circumstances in accordance with laws and regulations relating to animal health. This has happened but once in the past 13 years. 9. Recycling and Hazardous Waste: There was a household hazardous waste day on June 15, 1996 at the D.P.W. yard at which 275 households were served at this collection. By State mandate, the Board is responsible for maintenance of proper sanitation at the Transfer Station and must monitor each category of materials being recycled. The Board strongly supports efforts to enhance recycling. 72 LINCOLN COUNCIL ON AGING John Caswell Marian Cook Jackie Gavin Allan Greaves BGrim Russ Mahan, Vice Chair Ruth I. Morey Marilyn O'Rourke Julie Pugh, Secretary/ Treasurer Jane Tatlock Wendy Palu Albert M. Avery III, Chairperson Elaine Bloom, Director Liz King, Assistant Director The Council on Aging enriches the life of the more than 1,100 Lincoln residents who are age 60 or over by providing ongoing activities and programs. Assistance is also available for problem solving or for resources information, so that senior citizens will find it possible to enjoy more years of independent living in their own homes. In addition Council on Aging resources are also available to any Lincoln resident looking for assistance or information to help their parents or another elderly resident both in the area or nation wide. It is the responsibility of the Council on Aging to: Identify the total needs of Lincoln elders; Enlist support and participation to meet these needs; Design, advocate for and/or implement services to fill these needs; Coordinate with area agencies on aging and be cognizant of state and federal legislation and programs regarding the elderly. Each month a newsletter, sent to every residence in Lincoln, lists the activities and programs for that month, as well as other pertinent information. Ongoing activities include Bowling each Monday at the Wal-Lex Lanes in Waltham and Fit For Life, the senior weight lifting program. Bridge enthusiasts play twice weekly while periodic classes help sharpen their skills. Line Dancing led by Dot Manzelli, assisted by her husband John, keeps Lincoln seniors on their toes. Monthly movies entertain and inform. Programs included a fascinating program on "Eclipses" presented by Chris Halas, a lecture and slides on the Winslow Homer Exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts followed by a trip to see the exhibit, and an off-the-cuff chat with Representative Jay Kaufman. Documentary film maker Debbie Dorsey told us about documentaries and her interest in filming the 4 th of July Parade. Jackie Parker shared slides and stories of her travels to Turkey. Bruce and Helen Bare took us on the first part of a journey to New Zealand, "Pacific Paradise". Elaine Burnham brought dolls, recently back from exhibition in Washington, and told us the fascinating story of slave Harriet Ann Jacobs, who made them. Lincoln attorney John Valpey discussed Basic Estate Planning. The Garden Club invited us to their meeting to hear Lincoln Tree Warden Ken Bassett and the Lincoln Sudbury High School Key Club invited the seniors to a traditional Thanksgiving 73 dinner. In addition everyone enjoyed the annual Strawberry Ice Cream Social and a Holiday Party that included a senior, Jeopardy-like, game show. Brooks teachers Joan Yarro and Lynda Meenan received a grant from the Lexington Schools Foundation and created a program that caused great excitement and a long waiting list. They requested and received funds to provide an Intergenerational Computer Program to teach seniors basic computer skills. A grant from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs allowed the COA to purchase a computer for senior practice at Bemis Hall. Seniors "went to school" on Mondays, where Brooks middle school students acted as tutors. Not only did the seniors learn beginning word processing, but some very special relationships developed between the seniors and their student tutors. Programs also included ways to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. Mary Kitses offered a Bereavement Support Group that meets once a month. The Pierce Fund funded monthly Blood Pressure Clinics and, along with the Friends of the COA, Podiatry Clinics. The Lincoln Health Department gave flu shots at a well attended clinic. Other health related programs included: "Safety in the Home", presented by the Department of Public Health; "How to Relax and Manage Stress"; "Managing Arthritis"; and "Living with Hearing Loss", which included hearing screenings. Lincoln senior men were invited to a "Morning of Health" at the Lexington Club. A grant from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs provided money for transportation to doctor and dentist appointments. Trip planners Allan Greaves, Marilyn O'Rourke and Jane Tatlock took us see shows at the Merrimack Repertory Theater and Concord Players. We attended the Big Apple Circus and a St. Patrick's Day Party complete with corned beef and cabbage. We journeyed to the Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, the Port of Galilee, Rhode Island for a boat ride, Lowell Historic Park, Tanglewood, a train ride through the Vermont fall foliage, Foxwood and the State House for lunch and a very special tour with Rep. Jay Kaufman. We also enjoyed tea and a tour of Newbury Court and a nostalgic trip to Waltham to visit the Girl Scout Camp and Museum. Lincoln seniors were involved in helping others. They acted as hostesses for two days to support a fund raiser Show Home for Minuteman Home Care. A talented group meets on Fridays and has made dozens of hand puppets. These are given to the Children's Ward at Emerson Hospital. Peg Carmen coordinates that project. Others were "Reading Partners" with first graders in Marie Crispen's Class. Ellen Raja coordinated a project where, on Mondays, seniors wound countless balls of yarn which were sent to women in refugee camps in the area formerly known as Yugoslavia. They used the yarn to knit into clothing for their use or for sale. Closer to home, volunteers played a very important role in all Council on Aging activities. They served as Board members and Friends of the Council on Aging, Meals-On-Wheels and LINC drivers, collators and speakers. They were hosts and hostesses and teachers and they worked at the health clinics. In all, 123 volunteers gave over 5,000 hours of their time, talents and enthusiasm to support Lincoln seniors and we thank them. The Lincoln Cultural Council, a local agency of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, gave the Council on Aging a grant that allowed us to hang art at the Lincoln Artists' Gallery at Bemis Hall. The Gallery, founded two years ago to give local artists a place to exhibit their work, had outstanding exhibits in 1996 including photographs titled "People Without Faces" by Joseph Sussman, watercolors of Lincoln by Ted Tucker, acrylic watercolors by Sally Chandler, photographs by Ruth Barbarow and "Scenes of Lincoln" by Ruth Barbarow, and Fabric Art by Dilla GOOCH Tingley. Art by the students of Susan Richards Hallstein from the Brooks Middle School was also on display. Most of the artists had the opportunity to discuss their work at a "Coffee & Conversation". Ruth Barbarow, Sally Chandler, and Marian Cook organized the Gallery. 74 Several Lincoln seniors received special recognition. In March, Grace Downing was given the Boston Post Cane at Town Meeting, recognizing her as Lincoln's oldest resident. The Selectmen also presented her with flowers and a plaque calligraphied by Mandy Young. In September Dorothy and John Manzelli were presented with the Community Leadership Award at the Minuteman Home Care Annual Meeting. They were recognized for their countless contributions to the Council on Aging, Lincoln seniors and the community. The Council on Aging offers many other services. SHINE (Serving Health Information Needs of Elders) Counselor Al Avery helped seniors sort out problems and offered information about health and long term care insurance and other health insurance related issues. We are all pleased to welcome newly trained SHINE Counselors John Caswell and Julie Pugh. Al Avery and Julie Pugh also offered assistance with tax preparation, both state and federal. In addition the COA was the local place to apply for Fuel Assistance, the Town Emergency Fund and the Globe Santa Fund. We are thoroughly enjoying our newly designed quarters. Thanks to the efforts of many people we were able to accomplish our goals at very little cost. Many volunteers worked at every level of the planning. We are especially grateful to Lincoln Architect Dick Reese who turned the existing space into a much more pleasant and usable floor plan and designer Vandy Savage who is sharing her expertise to make it beautiful. The Council on Aging is very fortunate to have an active and supportive group of "Friends" who support the Council in many ways. The following served as members of the Board of the Friends of the Lincoln Council on Aging: Catherine Bronson, Treasurer Priscilla Damon Barbara Davis Peg Elliott Natalie Faddoul Bill Grim Judy Gross Cynthia Moller Bill Monroe Claire Permain Cynthia Ritsher Jane Tatlock Nancy Wood, Clerk Elizabeth Snelling, President The Friends of the Council on Aging hosted the gala 'Top of the Town" holiday party for residents 65 and over and in the spring recognized the many volunteers who contributed to the COA with a 'Thank You" luncheon. They also sponsored the Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners given by Barbara Davis and her family. Funding from the Friends assisted with trips, Podiatry Clinics and publications and in the renovation and furnishing of the COA space. The LINC, a volunteer driving program, coordinated by the Friends, provided rides for seniors to Bemis Hall, the library, medical appointments and for shopping and errands. We thank the Friends and the many Lincoln residents and businesses who have supported the Council on Aging through their contributions to the Friends. 75 MINUTEMAN HOME CARE (MHC) Wendy L. Palu-Kusik, President and Board Member John Caswell, Member-at-Large Minuteman Home Care (MHC) is a non-profit social service agency which assists persons 60 years and older to live as independently in their own homes and communities. The bulk of the Minuteman Home Care budget comes from State and Federal government funding sources. The State Home Care Program provides services such as case management, homemaking, chores, transportation, respite care for care givers and some administrative expenses. In addition MHC provides protective services, eating together programs, information and referral, senior aides, alzheimer services, nursing home prescreening, companion care and money management programs. Title lll-B and Title lll-C of the Older Americans Acts provides federal funding for congregate care meals and home-delivered meals programs, legal services transportation services, and innovative community projects. A portion of the MHC budget comes from sixteen member communities and private donations. These contributions are a critical part of the agency's support. Through payment of an annual "local share" Lincoln is entitled to be represented on the policy setting Board of Members of Minuteman Home Care which administers the services. The Board consists of twenty members and eight members-at-large. During the 1996 fiscal year the local share assessed to the Town of Lincoln is $995.00. Local shares are assessed to each community on a formula based on the number of people 60 years of age and older living in the community. In Fiscal year 1996 Lincoln received $45,929 in services from MHC who served 114 clients in Lincoln. Lincoln's participation through the appointed board member to Minuteman Home Care and its "local share" is vital to the continued success of Minuteman Home Card and provision of needed services to the elders in our region. 76 DOG OFFICER In March 1990, the Lincoln Board of Selectmen entered into a contract with Mr. Leslie Boardman to provide 24 hours/day, 365 days/year dog officer services to the Town. The Dog Officer, or his agent, can be reached by calling the business telephone at the police station (259- 8113). The dispatchers record all calls for the Dog Officer and the Dog Officer then picks up these messages each evening. Non-emergency callers can expect a return call within the next day. If the call is an emergency, the Dog Officer will be paged for an immediate response. After seven years, Mr. Boardman is still the Dog Officer, and the program continues to run smoothly. It is clear that this would not be the case without the ongoing cooperation of the dispatchers and the Chief of Police. The Selectmen would also like to thank Mr. Boardman for his ongoing efforts. The Town of Lincoln held a Rabies Clinic this year, on May 11,1 996 for both cats and dogs. Activity for 1996 Included: Number of Calls Received: 272 Number of Dogs Impounded: 9 Licensed: 4 Not Licensed: 5 Dogs Sent to Lowell Humane Society: Dog Bites Reported: 7 Cat Bites Reported: A reminder: Dog owners must license their dogs by January 1 st of each year. Owners not licensing their dogs by April 1 st will have $5.00 fine added to the regular licensing fee. Licensing fees are as follows: Male/Female $10.00 Spayed/Neutered 6.00 Kennel License 25.00 (up to 4 dogs) Kennel License 50.00 (up to 10 dogs) Please remember, licenses make all the difference when trying to return a lost dog to its owner. 77 NORTH EAST SOLID WASTE COMMITTEE (NESWC) Timothy S. Higgins, Executive Secretary/Acting Representative This past year has been an active one for the NESWC Board of Directors, with re- negotiation of the town's long term contract for solid waste disposal as our primary focus. History : In 1985, Lincoln joined with twenty-two other communities in helping to finance the construction of a "trash-to-energy" plant that would generate electricity by burning trash. At the time, given the Commonwealth's stated intent to close municipal landfills and during a time of rapidly escalating energy prices, participation in NESWC was assumed to be a cost effective strategy. The towns entered into an agreement with Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc. to construct, operate and own the plant. Thus far, the assumptions regarding state regulations and energy prices have not proven out, resulting in a considerable financial burden: NESWC towns currently pay nearly double the spot market rate for trash disposal. Further, over the next eight years, the combination of back loaded debt repayments and federally mandated investments in air pollution control equipment will again double our costs. Current Negotiations: Negotiations have been ongoing between the twenty-three NESWC towns and Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc. The existing contract makes the towns responsible for the expense of operating the facility. In turn, we "enjoy" the benefits of most of the income generated. NESWC has attempted to negotiate alternatives that would transfer the economic risks and rewards to Wheelabrator. Two alternative models have emerged, neither of which has yet been translated into a final contract document: one requires the towns to extend the term for an additional ten years-the other does not. We continue to participate in the discussions, and look forward to the opportunity to consider these alternatives when NESWC and Wheelabrator have concluded their negotiations. In September Mr. C. Russel Hansen stepped down as the town's representative to the NESWC board - a service he has ably performed since 1993. Russ ensured that the town's interests were represented while the project bonds were re-financed, a new management team was installed, and throughout several attempts to restructure the contract with Wheelabrator. Russ has continued to make himself available to help evaluate changing conditions. 78 RECYCLING COMMITTEE John H.L. Bingham Dorothy Brennan Wesley Frost Hugo Liepmann Gwyn Loud Recycling efforts by conscientious residents have resulted in ninety-one thousand and ninety-seven dollars ($91,097) of savings for Lincoln in 1996. At Town Meeting the Recycling Committee will present an article asking for money to redesign the transfer station area to make recycling faster and more convenient for residents. Gridlock has at times prevailed in front of the paper bin with the present layout. Lincoln now recycles numbered plastics, cardboard, newspapers, mixed paper, glass containers (thanks to the glass volunteers and to Lynn Donaldson for organizing them), cans, scrap metal, appliances, and button batteries. The swap table has been a great success for the re-use and exchange of useful articles. You can get recycling information in several ways: • There will be a town-wide mailing of an updated recycling brochure in April. Please post it on your refrigerator. • Thanks to the Mass Audubon Society, you can also dial RECYCLE (732-9253), for information on Transfer Station hours and an update on the materials we recycle. • Watch "Michael Recycle" in the Lincoln Journal for great recycling ideas and the week's glass volunteers. Their good efforts are helping the town save money. Thanks to a state grant, compost bins are available at the Town Offices for half price. Call 259-2600 for more information. Blythe Robinson, Assistant Executive Secretary, deserves a special thanks for her dedicated seeking out of the best prices for recycled materials in a time when the market for them is in a cyclical decline, as well as for her excellent handling of all details of the recycling program. The Committee wishes to thank all recyclers, and especially the glass volunteers, for a good year of recycling. We have done well. If everyone in town recycles all they can, we can surely do even better. 79 PLANNING & PUBLIC WORKS PLANNING BOARD E. Crawley Cooper M. Palmer Faran Alex MacLean Dilla G. Tingley James B. White, Chairman The Planning Board remains committed to the planning goals established years ago to promote and retain the unique cultural, historic and rural aesthetic which is so essential to Lincoln's character. Through the use of its creativity and stamina as well as its bylaws and regulations, the Planning Board is empowered to ensure that each roadway, subdivision, and commercial proposal which comes before it will have the minimum adverse impact on Lincoln's character, traffic, and the environment. Early in 1996, the Planning Board considered several zoning and general bylaw changes which were placed on the warrant for the Annual town meeting. A proposal to expand the North Lincoln Planning District (and consequently add industrial/commercial space in that area) was not endorsed by the Planning Board. The land proposed for that development is owned by MASSPORT and the Planning Board does not favor expanded office development in this area. The Warrant also included changes to the zoning and general bylaws to enhance and clarify bylaws pertaining to public way access permits and zoning regulations for non-profit, religious, or educational structures. This allows board review of expansions to the various institutions in town and evaluation of their impacts on traffic, safety or the general purpose of the bylaw. The Board also discussed and reviewed a proposed change to the zoning bylaw dealing with non-conforming structures and uses. Extensive discussion during public hearings caused the Board to withdraw this article and set up a specific task force (Zoning Study Committee) chaired by Board member Crawley Cooper. The final report of this committee is near completion. The Board finalized site plan reviews on three out of four home sites located on Sweet Bay Lane. The Board approved a two lot cluster subdivision on Old County Road, while retaining a significant portion of the original eight acre parcel as open space. New plans for changes to existing cluster home sites were also reviewed as required. Discussion on potential subdivision proposals were carried on while several ANR (Approval Not Required) plans were approved during the course of the year. The Board conducted site plan reviews of several properties. Among these were several pre-existing non-conforming uses at 110 Concord Road and 339 South Great Road, as well as the proposed public safety building on Lincoln Road. The Board also conducted hearings on sign changes, accessory apartment applications, and changes in use as required in the Zoning Bylaw. In following these guidelines, the Board is able to work closely with all applicants towards maintaining the character and rural aesthetic of the Town. Regional issues continued to take up much of the Board's time and interest. Crosby's Corner on the border of Lincoln and Concord has long been acknowledged as a dangerous intersection. The Route 2 Corridor Advisory Committee (CAC) continues to work with the Massachusetts Highway Department (MHD) on improvements along Route 2. All three towns on the committee, Lincoln, Concord and Acton, have agreed that Crosby's Corner is the first priority for improvement. The probable upgrade of Route 2 from Bedford Road through Crosby's Corner 80 has caused the Planning Board to initiate neighborhood input regarding impact to the abutting neighborhood's and mitigation methods to lessen those impacts. Much creative thought and energy has caused good results. The MHD has listened and responded to these neighborhood concerns during these early stages of the process by agreeing to study different alternatives. The HATS Committee (consisting of Selectmen and Planning Board members of the four communities surrounding Hanscom Field) has worked and communicated in order to become an integral part of the Generic Environmental Impact Review currently underway by MASSPORT, which controls the land in and around the airfield. Through HATS' efforts, each town is now contributing commentary to the environmental review as it is being written. The four towns have also hired a planning consultant to work through the issues of a planning concept and process which all the communities can support, including MASSPORT and the Minute Man National Historical Park. The Planning Board looks forward to working on this regional effort. Lincoln is also an active member of MAGIC (Minuteman Advisory Group on Interlocal Coordination), a regional sub-group of the MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council). This group of towns extending from Lincoln to Route 495 deals with regional issues such as transportation, growth, and economic impacts. Lincoln also has representation on the Cambridge Watershed Advisory Commission, a regional group made up of the City of Cambridge and communities which surround the Cambridge Watershed. The Planning Board has been actively involved with the development of roadside paths in Lincoln. Two neighborhood groups have come forward with proposals for roadside paths. The first is a path along Bedford Road between Route 2 and Route 2A. This path was included in a priority list of the Bedford Roadside Path Committee in 1986. The Board looks forward to this being constructed in 1997, and trusts that it will serve as a vital link between North Lincoln, the Minute Man National Historical Park, and the rest of the community. The second roadside path under consideration for the near future is a continuation of the roadside path along Route 117 from the junction of Route 126 to the Mount Misery Conservation area. The Board supports the concept of roadside paths which provide linkage between neighborhoods and alternative transportation modes. On other local planning issues, the Planning Board has been working with the Selectmen to find a viable way for the Post Office to remain at its Lincoln Mall location. The Post Office has expressed a desire to expand or leave this location due to their needs for more space and adequate loading docks. The Board would like to see the Post Office remain at this commercial center of town and will work towards this goal. Members of the Board also actively participate on the Roadway Planning Committee and the Historic District Commission as part of their commitment to long term planning goals. During the course of the year, Board member Tom Wang resigned due to travel and work commitments. The Selectmen and the Planning Board jointly appointed Alex MacLean to fill the unexpired term. While the Board will miss the vision and skills that Mr. Wang brought with him as a landscape architect, the Board welcomes new member Alex MacLean, an aerial photographer who will add a special dimension and "overview" to the Board meetings. 81 BOARD OF APPEALS Despena F. Billings Buckner Creel Peter Guldberg Amalie Kass B. Braun, Chairman Pamela Green, Associate Member Susan Hall Mygatt, Associate Member There were three changes in the membership of the Board in 1996. David Ries resigned and Buckner Creel was appointed by the Selectmen to take his place. They also appointed Pamela Green as an Associate Member of the Board We extend, as always, our deepest and heartiest thanks to Nancy Zuelke, our Secretary. Our Report to the Town for 1995 discussed two matters in the Board's file of unfinished business, namely a proposed house on Davison Drive, and an appeal to the courts regarding the gasoline station on Concord Road. We had hoped both these matters would be resolved in 1996, but they were not. The parties involved in Davison Drive have been communicating with each other. We hope that 1997 brings their agreement, as well as resolution in both these matters. There were 10 applications filed, 10 hearings scheduled, 17 renewals published during 1996 as follows: January 23 - MICHAEL & JANET FRAZIER, 1 8 GRANVILLE ROAD special permit for accessory apartment.

The meeting was dedicated to reviewing and clarifying the charge, discussing and outlining a process, and reaching agreement on a time table. By the end of September, departments had updated their inventories of capital assets and had prioritized their project requests for fiscal years 98 - 2002. A series of three evening meetings were conducted in mid- October to provide the various departments, boards and committees the opportunity to present and support their requests, and to assist the Committee in gaining an understanding of the various projects. Our report was presented on November 1 st . In early December our recommendations were revised to address a budget shortfall in the public safety building construction account. At the time this report was submitted the Selectmen and Finance Committee were still formulating their respective positions for town meeting. Objective: Our intent is to (1) help the town predict and plan for significant, non-recurring expenditures for capital equipment and projects - for a five year time frame (2) serve as a sounding board for project proponents to ensure that proposals that go before town meeting are thoughtful and complete, and that alternative strategies for meeting a given need have been carefully considered, and (3) to weigh the relative need, timing, and impact each project will have on the financial position of the town. Scope / Definition of Capital Item: Generally, we've considered all tangible assets with a useful life of at least five (5) years, valued at $15,000 or more. This definition captures cars, trucks, fire engines, equipment (including data processing), infrastructure (roads, paths, drainage, etc), major building alterations, and new construction. We stretched the definition to incorporate planning studies and design services that are intended to result in a future request for funding in excess of $15,000. Items not considered: • capital items valued at between $1,000 - $4,999, which will appear under the heading of "Capital Outlay" in the respective operating budget of the department; • capital items or projects estimated to cost between $5,000 - $14,999, will appear, so far as we understand the intentions of the Selectmen and Finance Committee, as separate warrant articles; • routine building maintenance - addressed through the town-wide building maintenance article; and 84 • Water Department and Pierce House requests - given that they are financially self- sustaining. FY-98 Recommendations: In the aggregate, requests for capital projects for FY-98 totaled $1,425,000. We have recommended to the Selectmen and the Finance Committee that they defer consideration of several projects and support a total budget of $1,095,000. Included among our recommendations are: • $232,000 for replacement vehicles (Public Safety, Public Works and Conservation) • $156,000 for data processing equipment and applications - including $75,000 to equip the new public safety building • $135,000 for phase II of the ballfield improvement program, and • $140,000 to construct a roadside path on Bedford Road, north of Route 2 The entire text of our report is available at the Town Offices. FYs 99 - 2002: Outlook: We appreciate the thorough and careful attention town departments, boards, and committees gave in attempting to predict their capital needs through the year 2002. Despite their diligence, unanticipated needs will arise, town priorities will change, as will the town's financial position. Notwithstanding these uncertainties, it seems reasonable - for the purpose of long-range forecasting - to assume an annual capital investment of $600,000 - $800,000. In this regard, our recommendation supports the assumptions underlying the town's current forecast. 85 CONSERVATION COMMISSION Roger Bergen Doug Harding Addie Kim Tara Tracy Tom Walker Jona Donaldson, Chair So the salamanders were a little sluggish! Despite the much anticipated, yet decidedly disappointing amphibian migration, 1996 was a year of many successes for the Conservation Commission. Open Space preservation, wetlands protection and education, and wildlife management continued to be top priorities for the Commission. The year brought additional changes in membership to the board. The Commission lost the invaluable services of Peter Conrad, who has bid a fond farewell for a year's sabbatical dining on tea and crumpets in London, England. Mr. Conrad's broad perspective and keen insight into difficult conservation issues were great assets for the Commission. In addition Mr. Conrad's unique sense of humor, particularly his ability to make any sentence "punny", will be sorely missed. On a brighter note, the Commission welcomes Mr. Doug Harding to the Board. Mr. Harding's leadership skills and broad knowledge of town issues are a great addition to the Commission. PLANNING AND ADMINISTRATION Staffing : The Commission continues to benefit from the hard work and dedication of its staff which includes Mike Murphy, Conservation Land Manager; Geoff McGean; Conservation Administrator, and Carol Padden, Chief Ranger. Open Space Activities : The Commission continues to work towards protecting important land parcels in Town as prioritized by Lincoln's Open Space Plan. With the lack of available public funds for land purchase, the Commission is focusing much of its efforts on working with generous landowners who might be interested in conserving their lands through a Conservation Restriction (CR). A CR can permanently protect a property in its natural state while still allowing landowners to enjoy their land and, in many cases, receive a significant tax savings. As part of its open space activities, the Commission has initiated efforts to update its Open Space Plan. The Plan will help focus the town's conservation priorities for the next several years and also help guide future strategies for land management. Wetlands : The Commission and the Conservation Administrator continue to respond to the numerous requests for information by residents and developers regarding construction and other activities in and near wetlands. Lincoln's numerous wetlands function to provide important public benefits, including pollution attenuation, flood control, protection of water supplies, storm damage prevention, and wildlife habitat. The Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and the Town's Wetlands Protection Bylaw provide the regulatory framework within which the* Commission works to protect these important functions and values of Lincoln's wetlands. Through this framework, the Commission and its Administrator conduct site visits, guide residents through the permit process, review permit applications, and conduct meetings and hearings with applicants to ensure that a proposed project will not adversely affect wetlands. In most cases, the Commission requires that specific conditions be followed by an applicant for construction within 100 feet of wetlands. The Commission ensures that these conditions are satisfied during construction through regular site inspections. Over the past year, the 86 Commission held 43 public meetings and hearings to discuss and review projects near wetlands. These include new house construction, house additions, pond maintenance activities, and several federal, state and municipal projects. In order to facilitate a more proactive approach to wetlands protection in Town, the Commission is continuing to develop an educational outreach program. The Commission is creating a pamphlet which teaches landowners the importance and benefits of wetlands, the regulatory process for undertaking projects near wetlands, and how to become a "good neighbor" to a wetland. Farmland : As part of its stewardship role, the Commission works to ensure that sound agricultural practices are followed on all Town-owned conservation lands which are leased to farmers. The Commission encourages rotation of crops, careful pesticide and fertilizer use, planting of cover crops, and annual soil monitoring to help maintain land productivity. In addition, with the development of its farmland/wildlife policy, the Commission encourages farmers to always consider agricultural practices which are least invasive to wildlife. A new lease was awarded this year to the Food Project on the remaining 4 acre parcel of the Codman North field. Currently, there are seven farmers leasing 180 acres of farmland from the Town. Revenue generated from the lease agreements totals $4,191 per year. Wildlife : The Commission continues its efforts toward inventorying and protecting the numerous species of wildlife that are dependent on Lincoln's conservation lands for their habitats. Through the hard work and efforts of the Wildlife Advisory Committee (WAC), a group of wildlife experts who serve as an advisory resource for the Commission and the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust (LLCT), numerous wildlife projects were initiated during the year. These projects included planting a portion of the Smith Andover Field with native wildflowers, experimenting with techniques to reduce exotic and invasive plant species, monitoring of grassland bird populations, assisting with ongoing wildlife inventory projects, and continuing the very successful wildlife sightings column in the Lincoln Journal. The WAC also helped organize over 130 volunteers who eagerly signed up to assist with the annual salamander and frog migration across some of Lincoln's well traveled roads. Unfortunately, due to very unfavorable weather conditions, (i.e. heavy snow and no warm, rainy nights), the amphibian migration in March and early April was very sporadic. Volunteers continue to assist in identifying additional vernal pools in Town, temporary bodies of water where certain amphibians conduct their breeding activities. In consultation with the Commission and the LLCT, a Pond Committee was also established to assist in initiating an inventory of ponds throughout the Town. Working with an intern hired by the LLCT and Conservation Commission rangers, the Committee established an inventory protocol and assisted with both mapping and field work activities. The goal of the pond inventory project is to begin to increase the Town's understanding of its ponds, their overall health, the habitats that they provide, and the uses that they support. The Commission, LLCT, Wildlife Advisory Committee, and Pond Committee hope to gain more information over the coming years to better protect wildlife habitat on conservation lands and throughout Town, as well as to encourage residents to assist with the many ongoing inventory, research, and protection projects. Ranger Program : The Conservation Ranger program provides valuable sources of education and public safety on conservation land. With over 50,000 hikers, bikers, equestrians and skiers using 2,000+ acres of conservation land during the year, the uniformed presence of Conservation Rangers remains an essential service to the Town. 87 Chief Ranger, Carol Padden and Conservation Administrator Geoff McGean began an outreach program for Lincoln Elementary and Middle School Students in 1996. During the spring, fourth grade students were introduced to vernal pools, while fifth grade students explored different ecological communities. Rangers, John Guarnieri, Jane Layton, and Mary Mcintosh joined the Ranger program for the summer. During the summer, Rangers offered educational walks, maintained trails, and educated users about appropriate trail use. Ranger Jane Layton also assisted with the Pond Inventory Program. In the fall, Rangers inventoried trail conditions and assisted trail users. During the winter, Rangers directed and assisted skiers The busy summer months also saw increased enforcement and protection efforts around the Town's drinking water supply, Flint's Pond. Cooperation and financial assistance from the Water Commissioners allows for more ranger support around Flint's Pond. This increased support and education over the past few years has resulted in a reduction in the number of ranger-reported violations occurring in and around the pond. Rangers also increased their efforts to educate mountain bikers about the Towns Mountain Bike Policy and to enforce that policy when necessary. The donation boxes at the schools and the Lincoln Woods trailhead continue to be a source of support for the Ranger program. Money contributed to these boxes helps to offset the cost of the Ranger program and ongoing trail maintenance activities. Additional funds are collected through direct donations to the Conservation Commission, and group user fees. Together, these sources of revenue totaled approximately $450.00. CONSERVATION LAND MANAGEMENT Trails : The Land Manager continues to maintain the extensive trail system for the enjoyment of residents and visitors. At the Tanners Brook Conservation parcel, trails were maintained by cutting of brush and marking of trails. The designated bike trail had an additional section added to it to include a Macintosh Lane to School connection. A volunteer trail work day was arranged using Lincoln Guide Service help. The project involved the installation of water bars on the Pine Hill Bike Trail to prevent erosion on this heavily used trail. Work involving the posting of regulatory signs and notices took place throughout Town, including horse and bike restrictions, fire lane signs, and general rules posting. Hazard trees were removed at the Mt. Misery and 77 acre Sandy Pond Trust parcel. A damaging winter storm with heavy snow broke many trees over and on to trails and roadways in mid-December. Follow up work involved the clearing of the 50+ miles of trails using the help of volunteers, Conservation Rangers and the Land Manager for major problem trees. Continued trail maintenance includes; the maintenance of water bars through removal of accumulated sediment and debris, brush cutting to maintain trail width, sign repair, and gate maintenance. Fields : Over 50 acres of open fields and edges were maintained using the department's tractor which has a 5 foot diameter rotary mower, and a hand-held brush cutter. This mowing and brush cutting maintains the open space character of the Town's conservation fields. Mowing also maintains a grassland habitat for wildlife by not allowing the fields to grow in to heavy brush and trees. The fields are mowed late in the summer to allow for nesting wildlife to mature. Some sections of fields are being mowed on a rotation basis, leaving certain sections of the fields not mowed for a two year cycle. This mowing regime allows for the preservation of a winter cover and food source throughout the winter which is essential for certain wildllife species. Town Plantings and Tree Care : At the Town Office building, the foundation shrubs were pruned for maintenance purposes. Tree plantings consisted of five Chestnut Oaks along 88 Brownings field and Weston Road, three Magnolias near Codman Farm to continue with the existing planting, four Red Maples along Old Bedford Road, near Battle Road Farm, and two Kousa Dogwoods at the Town Office building entrance. Continued care of eight Elm trees, involving the injection of chemicals to prevent the Dutch Elm Disease, also took place. At the Fire and Police Station, three large Spruce trees were moved with a tree spade to allow for construction room and to act as a screen at their new location between the proposed building and an abutter's property. Other Projects : Wildlife management involved the placement of signs to protect the Goshawk nesting area near Flint's Pond and assisting with the salamander road closure signs. Bird nesting boxes were constructed for kestrals (a small hawk) and placed in the field, while existing nesting boxes, including those for wood ducks and blue birds, were maintained The double-sided signs at the School entrance and Canoe Landing were repaired and re-painted. At Snider Pond, an old rubble dam was rebuilt by the Lincoln D.P.W. This rebuilding will allow water to be held in the pond for a longer time each year, supporting a diversity of wildlife. A substantial amount of time was spent on snow removal early in the year given the record setting snowfall. 89 LINCOLN LAND CONSERVATION TRUST Kenneth E. Bassett Robert C. Brannen William A. King Gwyneth E. Loud Richard K. Nichols, Treasurer Katharine M. Preston Paul Svetz Robert H. Webb, Secretary William G. Constable, Chairman "Grass roots" is the term d'jour among contemporary environmental advocates and funders. Perhaps no organization is more "grass roots" than the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust which has, for almost 40 years, used all-volunteer efforts to protect both our grass lands and our community roots . Individual initiative, nurtured in the context of community participation, remains the hallmark of LLCT efforts in protecting Lincoln's open space and utilizing the town's bountiful natural resources. In 1996, many dozen citizens assisted the LLCT through their informal stewardship of trails and lands, as well as numerous work days, studies, and activities. The LLCT continues its efforts in conservation management, inventory and education. Natural resource protection remains the backbone of LLCT activities. 1996 weather conditions made maintenance of approximately 60 miles of trails an even more arduous task for volunteer stewards, as well as two summer trail workers. The program to improve our trails continued in 1996 with construction of an important trail connector on Pierce Hill, reconstruction of additional causeways, and installation of erosion control on many heavily used trails. Farming and open field management were continued largely through the efforts of Page Road Associates, the Codman Community Farm, and the Flint family. Of particular note has been the efforts to restore field edges, cutting back encroaching vegetation to restore the fields and, occasionally, unveil historic stone walls. Management of our resource areas include protection of unusual habitats upon and in wetlands. Natural succession was highlighted this year, as dialogue continued about protecting the habitat of one of Lincoln's more rare species, a bog orchid around which vegetative growth is reducing its viability. In conjunction with the Massachusetts' State Botanist, the Conservation Commission, the Wildlife Advisory Committee, and interested citizens, gentle vegetative management was undertaken to protect this unusual population. The Wildlife Advisory Committee of the LLCT and Conservation Commission continues to provide additional guidance on conservation matters, including a regular wildlife column in our local newspaper. The Wildlife Advisory Committee has established a Wildlife Hotline at the Conservation Commission office, through which wildlife reports may be recorded at 259-2612. The renewed effort to inventory Lincoln's natural resources benefited greatly from private initiatives in 1996. The 1995 grass land inventory was followed this year by a natural resource, land use, and historical study of Lincoln's most significant ponds. Summer work of an aquatic ecologist summer intern augmented volunteer initiatives through a Ponds Committee, coordinated with the LLCT and Conservation Commission. This data about our water bodies provides an irreplaceable baseline against which future changes, and management alternatives, may be measured. The Lincoln Ponds Report is available at the library and in the offices of conservation organizations. We anticipate further scientific measurement of Lincoln's natural areas. 90 Education has continued to develop as an important LLCT priority. Sales of the Guide to Conservation Land in Lincoln and Trail Maps continues to provide information to the thousands who enjoy Lincoln's trails. The LLCT continues to work with Brook's School teacher David Joseph to incorporate Lincoln's natural resources into the science programs at the Lincoln schools. Under the initiative of the Lincoln Garden Club, the LLCT and Conservation Commission have begun construction of a self-guided nature trail, behind Brook's School, including a platform in the wetlands for nature observation, scientific studies, and contemplation. The LLCT expresses appreciation to all who use Lincoln's open space, and especially to those stewards who help maintain the lands, waters and trails. As always, comments about trail conditions or other LLCT matters may be addressed via the LLCT phone line (259-0199). 91 LINCOLN LAND CONSERVATION TRUST 1996 FINANCIAL SUMMARY Balance as of 12/31/95 Lincoln Conservation Fund 275,039 Fidelity Money Market Funds 1 00,988 Jean W.

Scheff Katharine Preston, Chairman Lincoln low and moderate housing stock has been experiencing tremendous pressure. The desirability of Lincoln's proximity to business, cultural and academic centers, coupled with our success in preserving open space and rural character has pushed housing prices to extremely high levels. This has reduced the ability of an economically diverse population to live in Lincoln and provides a significant challenge to the Housing Commission to "hold the line" on ensuring a percentage of housing stock for low and moderate income people. It is for this reason that during the past year we have worked particularly hard to resolve the problems and issues at the Codman Farmhouse. Reluctantly, we decided that the use of the Farmhouse for elderly congregate living was no longer feasible. The last tenant left in June. In response to her much needed space, the assistant farmer at Codman was moved from the rear to the front unit, maintaining our tradition of housing one of the Codman farmers at the Farmhouse. We then prepared the rear for rental to a low or moderate income person who met our specific guidelines. Late in the year we decided to hold off rental, pending resolution of a larger issue. Some time ago the Codman Farm Board expressed to us their desire to take over management of the entire Farmhouse as an integrated part of the farm. We began to explore options that would work toward that goal while ensuring no net loss of affordable units. Designated members of the Codman Farm Board have been diligent co-workers in this regard, and Codman has offered us a house that they currently own in exchange for the Farmhouse. However, the house must be moved from its present location on National Park land. Finding a place to move it and the money to pay for the move has been the primary challenge of the fall season. As of this writing, it has not yet been resolved, but we continue to work with members of the Codman Farm Board to seek a win/win solution. Meanwhile, tenancy at our three other units go very smoothly, always with the cheerful assistance of Earl Midgley, the Building Commissioner and Inspector. We continue to monitor efforts to stabilize the financial woes at Lincoln Woods. Despite some glitches, Battle Road Farm continues to be used as a model for many other towns who want to build beautiful affordable housing. In October, Sara Mattes was appointed by the Selectmen to fill out Gus Browne's position. She has been a very welcomed and extremely capable addition. During the year we also made a conscious attempt to raise the Town's awareness of our work. This ranged from a highly successful Housing Forum in April, courtesy of the League of Women Voters, to articles in the Lincoln Journal and to numerous meetings with almost any other Town board that will listen to us explain the difficulty of our particular challenge. 93 WATER COMMISSIONERS Ellin Fuller Margaret B. Marsh Andrew F. Hall, III, Chairman The highlight of the year has to be the final debugging of the disinfectant facility, a project which was first mandated by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in 1 992. The final obstacle to bring the project to completion was the emergency generator system which, when initially designed and installed, did not provide for adequate air circulation causing the generator to overheat. After a redesign of the louver system which controlled the flow of air, the generator functions properly and is now exercised weekly in accordance with DEP requirements. The staff of the Water Department spent most of the year ironing out small design problems related to faulty valves, over or undersized line feeds, and many other electrical and plumbing problems which were finally resolved by a "take charge, get it fixed attitude" on the part of Pat Allen, Water Superintendent. Upgrading the water distribution system throughout the Town is a major priority of the Water Department and, this year an opportunity arose as a result of the sale of the Adams property on Baker Farm. The loop from the end of Granville Road across to the Adams property and then back down Baker Farm to Baker Bridge Road was a private water main. Through negotiations with the ISIS foundation, the new owners of the Adams property, we successfully arranged for the installation of new 8" water service throughout the loop, thus, improving fire protection and water pressure for all residents in the area. The ISIS Foundation agreed to install the water main if the Town would buy the necessary materials for the loop between Baker Bridge Road and the ISIS property. This was a good deal for both the Town and the residents along Baker Farm. In a spirit of cooperation this project is drawing to a close and it appears that the final installation of the water main will be completed in the spring of 1997. After a number of years of operating the Water Department with two full time employees and one superintendent, the Water Commissioners finally agreed to increase funding to allow for a third employee effective July 1, 1996. New regulations which required more training of personnel, more reporting and paper work with the DEP, and the need for more coverage in the field prompted the Water Commissioners to approve the addition of another employee. The Water Department now has better coverage and is better prepared to provide quicker response to water problems and, at the same time, comply with the ever increasing regulatory responsibilities of running a water department which has both wells and surface water sources. When the new intake pipe was installed as part of the disinfectant facility project, engineering surveys indicated that the pipe would have to be suspended in pilings, as the bottom of the pond was not stable enough to support the weight of the pipe. When XheJsWe^on^ were driven near the gate/screen house, they apparently started the process of undefmifiing the foundation of this structure. The building itself has now shifted approximately 8" on the granite foundation and the foundation itself has split and is starting to settle under itself. When news of the possible removal of the building from the waterfront reached some local residents, there was an immediate interest in saving the structure due to its historic significance. The Water Commissioners agreed that if the Citizen's Committee would pay to properly stabilize the building in the short run and then present a plan of restoration in a reasonable period of time that the Water Commissioners would take no immediate action to demolish the building. From the Water Commissioners point of view, the structure has no operational significance and, thus we were unwilling to commit our money to save the structure. At this point, the building is stabilized, however, the Citizen's Committee has not raised enough 94 money to date to complete the project. We expect this situation to be resolved in early 1 997 one way or another. On a financial note, the Water Department experienced a surplus again this year and it is expected that at the 1997 Town Meeting we will request an appropriation for approximately $450,000 to reduce our current outstanding debt of $915,000. It appears that we will be out of debt within two years. We will then start the process of building a surplus against the anticipated mandate of filtration by the DEP sometime in the future. In closing, we trust everyone realized that the Water Commissioners did not raise water rates in 1996. We felt that we were on track with our long-term goals and that, perhaps, a moratorium on rate increases would be appreciated. Finally, we want to acknowledge the fine work of Pat Allen and his staff. They were recently recognized by DEP as being one of, if not, the best Water Department staff in the Commonwealth. 95 STATISTICS AS OF DECEMBER 31. 1996 Beginning of Year Additions End of Year Miles of Water Main 56.83 Hydrants in Use 479 Gates in Use 706 Blow-Offs 55 Services in Use 1 ,687 0.20 2 2 11 57.03 481 708 55 1,698 1991 Spring Billing Fall Billing Spring Billing Fall Billing Spring Billing Fall Billing Spring Billing Fall Billing Spring Billing Fall Billing Spring Billing Fall Billing 54.1 million gallons 93.6 million gallons $120,176 361,201 1992 70.5 million gallons 92.1 million gallon's $219,328 322,234 1993 54.6 million gallons 104.8 million gallons $ 235,909 454,898 1994 58.2 million gallons 96.5 million gallons $ 262,554 435,751 1995 56.5 million gallons 109.3 million gallons $ 263,770 516,855 1996 61.9 million gallons 90.2 million gallons $ 288,726 424,331 96 PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT Vincent R. DeAmicis, Superintendent, Department of Public Works The following is an outline of various projects accomplished by the Department of Public Works in 1996. In January, February, March and April most of the highway department's time was concentrating on snow removal. Sweeping started in March and had to be postponed until April due to two snow storms. It took the highway department until the middle of July to complete the sweeping. In April a 1 ,700 foot easement was constructed off Mill Street to replace the one blocked by the landfill off Route 2A. During the month of May street sweeping continued and winter snow damage was repaired. In June and July the highway department's time was spent sweeping and making road repairs. In August the Snyder dam was constructed on conservation land. During September some improvements were made at the Transfer station for recycling. In October more road repairs were done in preparation for winter. In November the highway department picked up leaves off the roadside and roadside paths. In December more road repairs were needed. On December 7 th the Town was hit with a heavy wet snow storm causing severe damage to roadside trees, resulting in a 2 - 3 month cleanup project. Finally, throughout the year all Town owned equipment was maintained by the highway department and, as a result, approximately 325 work orders were completed. 97 TRAFFIC COMMITTEE Marilyn Brandt Eleanor Fitzgerald Michael Frazier John Tylko Jane Ward Robert Wolf John Caswell, Chairman Traffic continues to be a subject of interest to almost all citizens, from out of towners who see, and thankfully report, unsafe conditions, to those who do not like yellow center lines in the road, to those who are very concerned over the upcoming reconstruction of the railroad bridge on Route 126, to those living on Route 2 who will be disrupted/displaced by reconstruction of Crosby's Corner. The Committee held a public meeting in May to report back to the Town on the studies, recommendations, and actions which had resulted since the Committee was formed some two years ago. This is a process which seems well received and is one which we will most probably repeat each year. Our efforts during 1996 concentrated on areas delineated by our spring 1995 public meetings. These included attempting to bring consistency to the street line painting and markings, to delineate crosswalks better, to move stop fines so as to enhance visibility at intersections, and to improve awareness of curves, danger spots etc. through in-street markings. The Selectmen by and large approved our recommendations albeit with a tacit reminder to us that they, as well as many citizens, want to keep the number of signs in Town to as low a number as possible, as well as keeping the road paint to "visible but not garish". We have asked that the Selectmen call for in-street painting money in the Town Meeting appropriation to come from free cash so that it can be done earlier in the spring of 1 997. One problem Lincoln faces, however, is that the age of our road surfaces is such that they act as sponges for paint, and paint applied even as late as late August, is well faded by December. We will continue to research the costs and performance of better paints and also the in-street marking methods neighboring towns use to see what the most cost effective solutions might be. Signage on our roads was addressed so that obsolete and redundant signs will be removed, old, rusty, illegible and redundant ones replaced, and missing ones, mainly regarding speed limits and crosswalk warnings, will be emplaced. Revision of the speed limits on certain roads is under consideration with the Chief of Police. Final approval of speed limit changes, however, lies with the state. A review of Route 117 in Lincoln has been requested of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and the Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) because, next to Route 2, Route 117 is the most dangerous town road, and has some severe crossing problems and intersection problems, such as at Lincoln Road. This work will involve our neighbor towns along Route 1 17 as well. The MAPC is also reviewing the matter of truck exclusions in the metropolitan area, and it is our hope that we will be able to exclude through trucks over a certain weight from most of Lincoln's roads. Again we must gain state approval for any such actions, but we believe that clearly 18 wheelers and heavy construction vehicles do not need to go through Lincoln. Our infrastructure was never built for such loads, and the safety of our citizens is ever a concern. To this extent we have worked with the Chief of Police and continue to monitor the enforcement efforts his department performs, especially as to the results of the extra money voted in the 1996 Town Meeting for this purpose. The details are reported elsewhere in the Town Report, and, to our mind, are positive and worthy of even more money and effort in 1997, limited only by manpower. 98 The Committee works on and/or monitors the work of several other committees, such as the Pavement Management Committee, the Route 2 Citizens Advisory Committee, the Hanscom Field GEIR effort, HATS, etc. whose work is reported elsewhere. Route 2 is of course, a never ending, most important part of Lincoln's life and traffic, and the work of Selectwoman Delori and Planning Board member Tingley, appears to be resulting in very positive solutions to the problems of access, and of takings by the state resulting from the Crosby Corner rebuild. The Route 2 CAC, which includes representatives of Acton and Concord, is next moving on to the Concord Rotary rebuild effort. Traffic Management Committee members following these efforts are John Caswell and Eleanor Fitzgerald, Route 2 CAC; Eleanor Fitzgerald, HATS and the Hanscom GEIR; and Bob Wolf, the Pavement Management Committee. Jane Ward is the point person for truck exclusion, Bob Wolf for Route 117 review, and Marilyn Brandt, John Tylko, and Michael Frazier are working to develop a data base of trucks by size and frequency, by business, and numbers of vehicles by time and day from the Carroll School, DeCordova, and Audubon. We would appeal to all these businesses and organizations to help us understand our traffic flow, and especially to help us relative to trucks. The Committee anticipates that the 1997 Town Meeting will be asked to act further on the roadside paths on Route 117 from Route 126 to the Mount Misery parking, and on Bedford Road north of Route 2. If these are constructed, as we hope they are, the Committee will make recommendations to the Selectmen relative to the marking, signing and crossings of Route 126 and Route 2 to accommodate them. Finally, during the 1997 and 1998 construction seasons, the Massachusetts Highway Department (MHD) will contract to have the railroad bridge on Route 126 raised three feet (to accommodate higher trains) and rebuilt. This will entail making that stretch of road one way one year and one way the next. There will be a temporary traffic lights at each end of the construction to keep order, but nevertheless it promises to be problematic, and we will have to monitor the traffic carefully to see whether it exacerbates the problems elsewhere in town. We, and the Chief of Police and Fire, worry as to how emergency vehicles will manage, and we have asked the MHD to include controls so that our vehicles, as now presently equipped, can radio the temporary traffic lights to stop all traffic so that they may pass quickly and safely. We continue to appreciate and thank the Public Safety Department, the DPW and the Town Offices' personnel for all their help and support. We are especially grateful to Chief Allen Bowles, and we appreciate the efforts of the Selectmen and Planning Board in response to our recommendations. 99 THE PIERCE HOUSE COMMITTEE Judith C. F. Gross Jean Y. Home Raymond A. Levy Lucia MacMahon William Shea, Chair Use of the Pierce House has continued to increase again this year. A record 15 weekends were booked for two functions per weekend, and 5 weekends hosted three events. The added income has allowed the necessary maintenance to keep the house and grounds in first class condition. House maintenance continues on a systematic schedule with interior painting planned for this winter. An industrial size freezer will be installed shortly to provide the same convenience as the refrigerator purchased a few years ago that has been welcomed by caterers and house users. Roll down curtains were installed on the large south porch for early spring and late fall functions requiring additional space for large groups. With the high demand for supplementary tent use, the lawn directly in front of the house has suffered and has little time to recover during the busy seasons. We plan to address this problem in the spring. The rear parking lot is scheduled to be hot-topped this coming summer which will finally provide a safer walking surface and some organization to a car parking plan. Finally, we all want to express our sincere thanks to Lynn Donaldson who left Lincoln this past summer, and had been a committee member off and on over the past fifteen years. The Silver family should also be recognized for taking an extraordinary interest in the house and they are solely responsible for the extensive increase in house activity and customer satisfaction. 100 CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS Natalie A. Faddoul Martha DeNormandie Ann Janes, Chairman Nancy Zuelke, Agent Our main focus for 1996 was the landscape in the Lincoln Cemetery. We have hired an arborist, James Allen, to inventory all the trees and label them with aluminum tags. This inventory will include the name, the condition and work order suggestions for the necessary care or removal of the trees. In the spring of 1997 the pruning, etc. will be done by students from Minute Man Technical High School Horticultural Department. These students will be supervised by a faculty member. For this project we are consulting and relying on the expertise of Michael Murphy of the Conservation Commission. The long awaited rules and regulations sign project has been completed after many delays. The signs were delivered and installed as of November 15, 1996. One sign is placed on the cobble stone pillar at the entrance to the cemetery and the other at the intersection of the conservation trail and fire lane, at the north end of the cemetery. To appropriately preserve the cemetery grounds there is continual on-going maintenance. This effort is directed by Vincent DeAmicis and Richard Campobasso of the Department of Public Works. We have recognized the problem of damaged bushes, chipped or stained memorials caused by the large mowing machines. Our recommendation, to plot owners, is to photograph the stone and surrounding plantings, place a copy of the photo in their cemetery file at the Town Office. This documentation will help to identify the problems and to negotiate repairs or plant replacements with the mowing company. Another concern is the negative environmental impact on both the memorials and trees at Arborvitae Cemetery. The problem could be acid rain, automobile pollution or age, it must be investigated. We will continue the pattern set years ago by other commissioners to support the integrity of the cemeteries through proper maintenance and thoughtful planning. During 1996 twenty-three lots were sold and twenty-six interments took place. 101 LINCOLN HISTORIC DISTRICT COMMISSION Elizabeth C. Donaldson Eleanor H. Fitzgerald Kenneth E. Hurd Mary G. Spindler James B. White Colin L.M. Smith, Chairman Abigail S. Congdon (Alternate) Baseball was on the agenda again this year. The Commission approved a new plan submitted by the Recreation Committee to regrade the entire area behind the Town Offices to provide a permanent field for both junior soccer and T ball. This would take the place of the temporary arrangement that has prevailed for the past few years. The Commission approved a proposal by the Trustees of the Library to build a small terrace on the south side of the Library. Discussions concerning street lighting on Library Lane are on-going pending a discreet solution. An application by Russ and Pam Hansen to build a small addition at 15 Lincoln Road was approved. An application by Nancy Soulette to renovate and build a small addition at 1 Woods End Road was approved. An application by Anne Finucane to renovate a carriage house at 20 Trapelo Road was approved. 102 BEMIS HALL ADVISORY COMMITTEE Barbara Beal Elaine Bloom Natalie Faddoul Debra Haiduven John Manzelli Blythe Robinson, (ex-officio) The Advisory Board held one meeting during 1996. The focus of the meeting revolved around the renovations and the redesigning of the Council on Aging rooms. The Board also recommended to the Selectmen that the Map Room no longer be made available to the general public for rental. Restoration on the piano was completed and it was returned to Bemis Hall this year. Everyone is delighted with the quality and superior sound and are enjoying it immensely. The Board appreciates the assistance provided by the Lincoln Cultural Council to make this a reality. 103 CODMAN COMMUNITY FARMS, INC. Gabrielle Brenninkmeyer Jeffrey Brown Elizabeth Donaldson JoAnn England Joanna Hopkins, Treasurer Elect Rollin Johnson Heidi Nichols David O'Neil Ellen (Owen) Todd Steven Perlmutter Carla Ricci Margaret-Ann Rice David Ries Elizabeth Taylor Lerman, Clerk Karl Zuelke William Stason, President 1996 was an eventful, challenging, and successful year for CCF. There is no question that the farm is on a trajectory that bodes well for ever greater contributions to the Lincoln community and region. Farming, educational, social, and management objectives each took distinct steps forward. Larry Fleckenstein and Anne Papadopoulos led farming activities that were highlighted by an ambitious program to upgrade the quality of hayfields that we lease from the Conservation Commission or care for for private owners. New projects included development of a composting program that will substitute recycled products for fertilizer in maintaining fields and raising corn silage as feed for cows. More than 12,000 bales of excellent hay were harvested. Cows, pigs, sheep and chickens yielded a variety of naturally raised products that were sold through the Codman Farm Store. A thorough reevaluation of meat sales led to reorganization of our storage and marketing effort that promises greater availability of meats in 1997. Controversy over veal calves continued. CCF has decided to continue raising veal calves as an intrinsic part of the cycle of life on a balanced farm but is doing everything it reasonably can to do this humanely and to remain sensitive to the opinions of those who have contrary views. Community garden plots were again a cornerstone of our agricultural programs; 110 plots thrived under the care of a diverse group of farmers from Lincoln and neighboring towns. A barn fire that was set accidentally by a lighted match on August 25 threatened the very existence of the farm. Thanks to early detection and superlative work by fire departments from Lincoln and 8 neighboring towns, plus a throng of vigorous volunteers, damage was minimized and the barns were saved. The event, while costly in terms of barn repair (about $40,000) and lost produce (nearly $10,000 worth of hay and grain for animals), created extraordinary benefits as well - increased awareness of CCF as a unique resource within Lincoln, an outpouring of tangible support (financial and physical effort), and closer cooperation than ever between CCF and town boards and departments. We will forever be grateful to the Fire and Police Department and the Department of Public Works for their assistance. The fire has left CCF weakened financially in the short-term but stronger than ever as a town organization. CCF received an enormous boost when the Ogden Codman Trustees very generously agreed to contribute $17,000 toward the construction of a small new barn in the lower barnyard. The barn will help us to feed, shelter, and care for pigs and cows better than we can now. This gift will be matched by funds raised in the community. Plans are in progress for a 'good ole fashioned barn-raisin' in the fall of 1997. 104 Educational programs flourished during 1996. These programs currently expose nearly 95% of Lincoln children to the pleasures and perils of farming. The Children's Garden at CCF was a spectacular undertaking that involved more than 30 children and dedicated parents. Hartwell School's chicken-hatching and pumpkin, sunflower and gourd planting programs were more popular than ever, and the Farmer's Helper Program thrived. A new pilot program called 'Hired Hands' - funded by the Codman Trustees - will offer teenagers a hands-on farming opportunity during this coming spring vacation. Outreach to other community organizations remained a high priority. Connections with Drumlin Farm, the Food Project, Minuteman National Historical Park (MNHP) and the Housing Commission were especially fruitful. Close collaboration with Drumlin Farm in sharing farm help and farm equipment has become a tradition that is a win-win arrangement. This year it took on an added dimension when CCF harvested Drumlin's hay while a new farmer was being hired. To help the Food Project meet its production goals, CCF relinquished another 4 acres of North Codman Field (added to the 4 acres we had freed the previous year). Our support for the Food Project is rooted in its objectives to educate youth in farming practices while supplying vegetables to inner city people. The development of closer relationships with MNHP centered on our common interests in sustaining farming in New England. An initiative to renew a pasture for cattle next to the Hartwell Tavern continued; and possibilities for adding sheep and chickens were explored. We expect these programs to expand in future years. Close collaboration with the Housing Commission provides an outstanding example of how two Lincoln groups can work together to their mutual benefit. CCF is confronted with critical needs for subsidized housing for its farmers and for a business office. The Housing Commission is confronted with a failed experiment in congregate housing in the Codman Farmhouse and the need to identify new strategies for increasing the number of affordable residential units in town. Proposed solution: CCF will give its farmer's house on Bedford Lane to the Housing Commission (MNHP owns the land and has required that the house be moved to accommodate development of new trail system); the Housing Commission will turn management of the Farmhouse over to CCF; and the Ogden Codman Trustees will provide funds for moving the Bedford Lane house to a Town-owned site on Mill Street. At this writing, details are still being worked out but optimism prevails. Social activities sponsored by CCF were highlighted by the Fifth Annual Gala Dinner and Auction in May and the Farmside Feast and Harvest Fair in September. Interspersed were the Annual Meeting for Members in March, the luncheon served at Town Meeting, sheepshearing , our annual dinner for the Ogden Codman Trustees in June, a prize-winning float in the fourth of July parade, and the (almost) annual trail race in October. CCF is a busy place! Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have given so generously of your time, energy, and money to make CCF and its activities possible. We hope that all Lincoln residents will take an active part in helping us to maintain farming in Lincoln and to build a farm that will better serve the community's needs. 105 ^ «a- in o r» r- C\J CO v- 00 o t- CO T- O CO i- o 00 eo" co io- CO" CO" T- of CO 8 CT> CO r^ tj- m c\j y- in co S i- r^- CO CO CO CO co in co C\J ^ o> co in co O) CM O CO o O CD ^ m o co C\T cm" co- CO 1- CM co C\J ^ CO o O CO CM i- O co" i-" CO CM CO N O NWr- CO CM O rC co" co- cm T- ■ OQ in c £ of? - to CO if* tt.gS z co E S a) O o g- « Z UJ "g < Mill S 0) w Q 3 t O q) a> O > >- ■i c cd c 111 08 E >» 9> col cu Q. c Q_ LU o CD CM T- N Oi CM CO "* T— CO CNJ N T— CO CO r^ CO CD N.

Constable, Town Representative and 1996-1997 President Lincoln's representative is completing his second term as President of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). As the regional planning agency for 101 cities and towns in Eastern Massachusetts, MAPC provides communication, research and technical assistance to its towns, its subregions and its affiliated agencies. MAPC's activities and accomplishments on behalf of its 2.8 million citizens are substantial and varied. Achievements of statewide and national importance complement the numerous examples of service to subregions and municipalities in Eastern Massachusetts. Perhaps the most notable achievement in 1996 was MAPC's leadership revising the mechanism for determining aid to state and local transportation projects within the region. Culminating an effort of several years, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has been expanded, reducing the dominance of the state agencies and permitting, for the first time, substantive community involvement in the allocation of financial resources from the federal government to various transportation projects in the metropolitan region. When a 1995 federal review of the MPO found substantial deficiencies in the existing process, MAPC played a central role in redesigning the organization. In addition to adding several local representatives to the MPO, the new agreement helps ensure that at least $40 million will be allocated by community representatives for community transportation projects in the MAPC region. The election of the first community positions will take place early in 1997 at an MAPC Council meeting. While the Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel Project remains the largest public works project in the region (and in the nation!), Congress is considering changes to federal transportation financing law which could have a greater impact on the state-wide road and bridge program in Massachusetts. MAPC continues to work to thwart a reduction of perhaps $400 million annually in federal transportation aid to Massachusetts, as contemplated in proposed federal transportation laws. More locally, the eight subregions of MAPC continue working on their numerous initiatives. Lincoln's participation in the Minuteman Advisory Group on Interlocal Coordination (MAGIC) has contributed to subregional review of Route 2, Hanscom Field, MBTA assessments and developments of regional impacts. MAGIC has convened the towns' executive officers and the region's legislators, providing a dialog and focus for regional initiatives. Crawley Cooper and Buzz Constable are the Selectmen's designees to MAGIC. Massport's Generic Environmental Impact Report for Hanscom Field is receiving local guidance from the four HATS (Hanscom Area Towns) Committee, staffed primarily by MAPC. In 1996, through HATS the towns of Lincoln, Bedford, Concord and Lexington created an unprecedented joint planning effort for the Hanscom region. This master planning process provides not only a counterpoint to Massport's future activities; it also provides an opportunity for private developments on the borders of these towns to be considered in light of each others priorities. MAPC provides many planning services to its communities and state agencies within the region. The MAPC Geographic Information System (GIS) Lab has continued to grow and provide new services to local government. Eight workshops on GIS data automation provided core education to assessors, planners and other local officials on the emerging computer technology which will significantly change local information systems over the next several years. GIS staff provided maps for HATS, the Sudbury-Assabet-Concord River Basin analysis, and Dpen space advocates within the region. 109 Among the several hundred educational and advocacy meetings that the agency sponsors each year, several merit particular note. MAPC's ongoing Metropolitan Community Dialogs included meetings on such topics as: 1) the disjunct between projected employee needs in the region and the employee training programs available; 2) implementation of the Governor's Executive Order 384, which provides for sunsetting of state regulations; 3) future economic development initiatives; 4) the merits and mechanisms of encouraging Transit Oriented Development (TOD), which concentrates development around existing infrastructure; and 5) coordinating the many open space preservation and recreation conservation organizations within the region. MAPC's legislative assistance provides municipalities, planners, natural resource advocates, and transportation interests with a knowledgeable communications link with the state legislature. Many of the MAPC legislative priorities were passed in 1996, including Title V Septic System Assistance, the Rivers Protection Bill, and bond bills relating to Open Space, Transportation, and Sea Port Improvement. 110 PERSONNEL BOARD Elliot Curtis Kathy Nicholson Beth Ries, Chairman During 1996 the Board worked closely with Executive Secretary Tim Higgins and Assistant Executive Secretary Blythe Robinson in dealing with town personnel issues. The Board's primary efforts were directed at making certain that the numerous non-union town positions were properly classified within the personnel system. The Board utilizes the classification guidelines devised by consultants in 1987 to determine the appropriate grade level and compensation range for each position. As jobs change or new positions are created, the classification process helps to assure parity among employees. In response to a request from the library staff, the Board discussed the possibility of establishing a sick leave bank for town employees. Once more research has been completed, the Board will again consider the question. As a follow-up to earlier activities, the Board expects to assist the Executive Secretary in implementing a progress review system in 1997. The system is designed to help managers work effectively with employees in assessing their performance, with the goal of continuously improving employee job know-how and job satisfaction. Two members enthusiastically participated in the Springboard 1996 and moderator's team meetings. The Board as a whole looks forward to future gatherings with other town boards and to assisting with pertinent issues that various officials may bring to their attention. Ill LIBRARY, RECREATION & SCHOOLS TRUSTEES OF THE LINCOLN PUBLIC LIBRARY Term Expires Emily Althausen Self-Perpetuating Bruce Bare Selectmen's Appointee 1999 Linda May Elected 1998 Nancy Rote School Committee Appointee 1997 Joseph Sussman Self-Perpetuating Craig Hill, Chairman Self-Perpetuating OVERVIEW The year at the library went smoothly. As in past years the staff provided a welcoming atmosphere for patrons of all ages, along with ready access to the books, materials and information they wanted. Once again, a variety of events, programs and exhibitions offered intellectual or aesthetic delight - and there was creative fun involving lots of kids in the joys of reading. The library building received several necessary repairs and one relatively inexpensive improvement, the new reading terrace, was at last completed. While circulation of books and materials rose only modestly over 1995 levels, our circulation per capita continued to be among the highest in the Commonwealth for towns in our 5,000-10,000 population cohort. We continued our steady progress in providing patrons with access to the information technology realm along with our traditional library services. Books and the printed page remain our core concern, but our reference capabilities continued to expand with our access through the Minuteman Library Network to such electronic information sources as the Internet (via a text-only LYNX connection), the IAC Magazine Index Database, the Minuteman Community Information and Referral Database, and the on-line catalogs of libraries throughout the country. Two new terminals were added this year - one additional public access terminal in the Reference Room, and one for staff use. The Vault in the Historical Room of the library has for many years been a principal repository of Lincoln historical material and sometimes a resting place for items of dubious historical relevance. In 1996 a rejuvenated Vault Committee, composed of Library Trustee Emily Althausen, Peg Carmen, Bisty Donaldson, Ann Janes, Jack McLean, Peg Martin, Elizabeth Snelling, and Library Director Jerry Cirillo, greatly helped by the archival expertise of reference Librarian Jeanne Bracken, succeeded in sorting through the jumble. Items not connected to Lincoln history were deaccessioned and in the process money was raised to conserve, restore and re-hang several paintings of Lincoln scenes that had been moldering in the Vault for years. MONEY. TIME. MATERIALS A budget increase of 4.7% was approved at the March 23 Town Meeting for the fiscal year ending June 30,1997. This increase included a 3% cost of living adjustment. The salary allocation incorporated those four additional hours per week for the reference position and four hours per week for the Circulation Assistant position that had been listed as "extra hours" in the previous year's budget. No other changes were made in staffing levels or in hours open to the public. The budget line item for books and other library materials rose only 1 .5% to an amount of $55,825. This municipally appropriated amount was again supplemented, as in years past, by generous contributions from the Friends of the Library, many individual private donors, library trust funds, and other non-municipal sources of income. Increasing the materials appropriation 112 in the coming years will be a primary focus of the Trustees. An increased materials appropriation will allow the library to continue to meet the demands of its patrons for current materials in a variety of formats, and also bring the library closer to meeting the required percentage of expenditures necessary for continued State Certification by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Although for the foreseeable future, the library will no doubt continue to rely on private funds to supplement its materials allocation, the Trustees would like to lessen the reliance on private funding and shift the balance more to the municipal side. STAFF John Bottino, library custodian since November 15, 1960, retired on September 22, after thirty-six years of service, and one day before his 81 st birthday. John was truly a presence at the library. John's hard work, cooperative attitude, and sharp sense of humor are sincerely missed by the staff. Robert Bottino now becomes our "senior" custodian, with two new assistants, Bob Lager on weekday and Saturday mornings, and Dan Guden as Sunday and back-up custodian. Dana Weigent was on leave of absence from the Children's Room from February through May. During Dana's sojourn in Switzerland, the Children's Room carried out its program with the assistance of temporary employees Jean Kennedy, Rachel Lefkowitz, and extra hours from Kathy Rushby. There were no other staff changes in 1 996. TRUSTEES Long time Trustee Douglas Harding resigned his position as Self-Perpetuating Trustee after a term of 14 years. After interviews with several candidates the Board selected Joseph Sussman as the Board's new Self-Perpetuating Trustee. A professor at MIT, Joe brings to the Board a deep concern for the Lincoln Public Library and a wealth of experience in both the business and academic worlds. Joe served this year as the Board's representative on the town- wide Capital Planning Committee. Trustee Sub-committees: Building and Grounds: Emily Althausen and Craig Hill: Personnel: Linda May and Nancy Rote; Collections and Programs: Bruce Bare and Joseph Sussman; Vault Committee: Emily Althausen. CELEBRATIONS In February the Friends sponsored a reception and book-signing party for David Donald, a long-time Lincoln resident and twice a Pulitzer Prize recipient, to celebrate the publication of his newest book, Lincoln. In March the library was favored by a visit from the Mayor of Lincoln, England, the Honorable Geoffrey Ellis. This year's library entry in the town's Fourth of July parade celebrated the library's mix of traditional materials and new technology with a float titled "From Charlotte's Web to the World Wide Web." Once again, as a testament to the Trustees' hard work and long-range planning, the float was a prize winner. A reception honoring John Bottino on the occasion of his retirement was hosted by the Trustees on November 17. Many of John's family and friends, as well as present and former trustees and staff, gathered to wish John well. 113 At this year's Boxing Day at the library, the magician Bonaparte entertained an audience of more than seventy-five, many of them children. The gathering was a lively one, with the audience, both children and adults, suitably entertained and mystified. BUILDING AND GROUNDS The gift of two hand-crafted teak garden benches from the Cole family in memory of Edwin and Lucy Cole prompted the Trustees to revive their plan for a "reading terrace" at the link between the old and new wings of the building. With a plan generously donated by landscape designer and library neighbor, Abigail Congdon, and construction work by Todd Brown's Lincoln Tree and Landscape at below-market rates, the terrace, funded entirely by donations, at last became a reality. We look forward to its becoming a popular spot for reading and reflection during the warmer months. In some less visible but no less important building improvements, seven new recessed lights were installed in the Reference Room; gutters, flashing, and roof slates were repaired/replaced on the Preston Building; a water leak over the Children's Room desk was repaired; and several new electrical outlets were installed in various locations. A staff committee comprised of Carolyn Birmingham, Lisa Rothenberg, and Kathy Rushby did an excellent job in preparing a plan for the re-design of the staff work area. The library is now working with an interior design consultant to develop this plan into a formal proposal and then to begin the bidding process. FRIENDS The library was once again blessed with the enthusiastic support of the Friends of the Lincoln Library. In May, the Friends undertook their second Lincoln house tour. This year's tour of seven extraordinary Lincoln homes, "Rooms With a View," drew more than 300 participants. Ably coordinated by Laura Crosby and Jo Ann England, the tour was a significant fund-raiser for the Friends and resulted in the presentation of a substantial check to the library. The Friends also sponsored their third literary tour to Great Britain. This year the focus of the trip was on Victorian women writers, and on sites associated with the Brontes, with George Eliot, and with Elizabeth Gaskell. The tour once again proved to be a successful fund-raiser for the Friends and drew enthusiastic reviews from participants. On May 21 the Friends hosted their annual "appreciation luncheon" for library staff and volunteers. Earlier that same day Lincoln publisher David Godine was guest speaker at the group's Annual Meeting. The Friends also made a substantial contribution to the library's materials budget and underwrote the cost of seven museum passes. They funded both Children's and Adult programming throughout the year and the printing of the library's three seasonal brochures. The Trustees and staff would like to take this opportunity to note the passing in 1996 of our premiere "Friend," Jane Telling. Jane worked long and hard for our Friends' group; the Friends' 1996 House Tour was dedicated to her memory. Jane has left a legacy to the library and the Town that will be cherished and remembered for a long time to come. 114 GRANTS The library met the State Certification requirements of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners in 1996 and was thus eligible for three State Aid payments: a Library Incentive grant of $3914.00; a Municipal equalization grant of $1888.63; and a Non-Resident Circulation award of $7853.75; for a total State aid payment of $13656.38. Once again we participated in the Massport Community Summer Jobs Program, and we were fortunate to have the services of two very capable young people, Melissa Tobin of Concord, and Brendan Lennon of Lincoln, as our two summer interns. Each of them worked very well in covering the adult and children's circulation desks and assisting with a number of special projects. PROGRAMS Both the Children's and Adult departments again presented a full complement of programs for library patrons of all ages. In all, 292 programs were presented to total audiences of 7,075. In addition to regularly scheduled storyhours throughout the year, the Children's Department presented many entertaining special programs. February school vacation week's theme of "Russian Roundabout" featured appearances by Igor Folkin's Wooden Horse Puppets, the Starbird Puppet Theatre, and a Russian Tale and Craft program. "Mystery Week" was the theme of the April vacation week's activities, highlighted by a scavenger hunt throughout the library. Approximately 150 readers participated in "Catch the Summer Spark," this year's summer reading program. Together they read more than 1 ,000 books. Summer presentations featured "Bubblemania," "Alexander the Jester," and "Mad Science of Greater Boston," as well as a grand finale party in Pierce Park. Authors, illustrators, and performers visiting the Children's Room this year included Lucinda Landon, author of the Meg Mackintosh series, Marcia Estabrook as Mother Goose, illustrator Jill Barton, and storytellers Marc Joel Leavitt and Elisa Pearmain. Lincoln resident Sally Kindleberger brought her fourth grade drama class from the Nashoba Brooks School to perform Halloween skits for Lincoln preschool children in October. In the year's final presentation the Children's Room cosponsored with the Metco program a visit from Mpeti Ole Surum on the "Way of the Maasai." This Maasai warrior completely captivated a spellbound audience of more than 150 children and adults. In May and June the Children's Librarians visited the Lincoln Public Schools for their annual booktalk presentations to children in grades K - 8. Adult programming featured both a summer film series and an evening book discussion group that focused women writers of the Victorian period as a complement to the Friends September literary tour. Ellen Sisco's perennially popular Friday Morning book group featured "Sea Stories" - ncluding such classics as Mutiny on the Bounty , and Joshua Slocum's Sailing Alone around the World , and notable contemporary works by Peter Matthiessen, John Casey, and Charles Johnson. 115 Classic Jazz at the Lincoln Library concluded its thirteenth season with a live performance night on May 29 featuring Bob Connor's Yankee Rhythm Kings. Classic Jazz began a new round of monthly listening sessions in September. Our thanks to the Friends of the Lincoln Library for their generous support of both Adult and Children's programming. GIFTS The Trustees are grateful to all those who have contributed to the library in 1996.

The main objectives of the MCC are to promote and maintain the vitality of existing cultural resources, to ensure the continued contribution and value of these resources, and to involve as many citizens as possible in some aspect of cultural activity. Allocations of state funds by the MCC are made according to the population and the financial need of the community. For 1996 Lincoln received $3,150.00 and the following grants were made pending approval of the MCC: Lincoln Historical Society. Elaine Jarvis and Ingrid Neri. DeCordova Museum- Rebecca Low. Deanna Arista. Council on Aging. Clive Russ. Melody Winnig. Elaine Bloom and Nancy Fincke. Community picture playground 250.00 The LCC was instrumental in the "Celebrate Arts" show at the LSHS and awarded the prizes to students for excellence in two and three dimensional art. In October, the LCC hosted the Biannual Art Show at the Lincoln Public Library with over 50 local artists in participation. Rachel Lafo of the DeCordova Museum spoke at the opening reception. The Lincoln Cultural Council, which promotes and supports numerous community events, represents artists of different backgrounds and is comprised of people very committed to seeing the arts thrive in Lincoln.

The summer day camp and the Codman Pool had successful summers. The day camp generated $109,539, and the pool generated $50,527. Overall, the actual revenues exceeded the projected revenues by about $25,000. This was the first year that the recreation department had the use of one of the Hartwell Pods (the old library pod), and we have used it to expand the number of programs we offer, as well as providing a more convenient location for many of the programs offered to elementary school children. This year we undertook a major field renovation project. The project is envisaged as a two year project, costing about $150,000 in each year. We are currently completing the first year, and will be requesting funding for the second year at the 1997 Town Meeting. In the first year, we renovated the fields behind Smith School and the Town Offices. The field behind Smith will now have a tee ball field, a little league baseball field/softball field, several six on six soccer fields, and a playground. A significant portion of the funds for this field came from private contributions. The field behind Town Offices will have a full sized soccer field, a six on six field, and a tee ball field. We succeeded in grading and seeding the Smith Fields before the great deluge, but the field behind Town Offices was not completed, and will be seeded this spring. The plan for next year is to level out Codman Field and create two full size soccer fields on Brooks Field. When this work is completed, we will have three large soccer fields, one baseball field with 60 ft. base paths, one baseball field with 45 ft. base paths, three tee ball fields, and numerous six on six soccer fields. We hope to be able to play on Smith Field next fall, behind Town Offices next spring, and to have the work on Codman completed by next spring. Once again the department offered a number of programs over the year that were funded by user fees. These ranged from weekly programs such as computertots (computers for kids) and martial arts, to trips such as the Sunday River ski trip. 121 CELEBRATIONS COMMITTEE Bruce Hoar Kathy Madison Walter Martin Richard Silver Neil Feinberg, Chairman 1996 was a year of growth for the Celebrations Committee, and we're not just talking about the waistlines of the male committee members! Our town-wide mailings got bigger, thanks to the generous financial support of Hunneman & Co. - Coldwell Banker, and our concert series grew as well. The Celebrations Committee is charged with supporting Lincoln's Minutemen with their Patriot's Day celebration, for sponsoring and overseeing Lincoln's Veteran's Day tribute and July 4 th celebration and for producing the Pierce Park Summer Concert Series. The Committee would like to thank former Marine Officer Mike Farny for offering his insights on Memorial Day. It was quite an interesting talk. Comments from Selectmen Peter Sugar and John Kerr were also appreciated. The 4 th is Lincoln's biggest celebration and is a day-long party for all town residents. As usual, it began with the customary and very fortifying Firefighter's Pancake Breakfast, ably manned by town police and fire staff. The road race would never have taken place without the registration assistance of Nancy Ritchie and Kathy Moritz (also a timer), timers Ingrid Neri and Irene Rice, Walter Page and computer with his team of race result programmers, John Snelling's cones, water table hose Phil Gnatowski, and Larry Zuelke and his (semi-) trusty musket. The parade route along Lincoln Road was crowded this year, with onlookers cheering and waving to the Grand Marshal, Dr. Perry Culver. The Committee extends a special thanks to Dr. C. for taking part in the festivities and for being such a good sport. Town committee parade floats are always a hoot, and this year was no exception. The Selectmen listened and got earfuls of opinions (curved or flat?) and the Finance Committee humorously reminded us that free cash is heading the way of the dinosaur. Parade judges John & Carol Caswell and Don & Denise Bienfang assiduously and irreverently reviewed all entrants and awarded appropriate ribbons to all participants. "Best Float in the Parade" honors were awarded to the Cub Scouts who built a soap box derby car of monstrous proportions, narrowly beating out a beautiful entry by the Lincoln Cultural Council. All who worked on floats deserve our appreciation. Of special note is the participation of the Lincoln Minutemen and especially their Captain, Rick Wiggin. While we know the 4 th is a fun event, there is some important history to remember. Rick has worked with the Committee the past two years to meld the history and fun parts together. Hearing Rick belt out the Declaration of Independence (because the PA system didn't work) was truly inspiring and if you closed your eyes you could almost imagine you were in Lincoln 220 years ago when town residents rose up against King George's tyranny. Mid-day sports events brought out soccer, tennis, swimming, Softball and basketball enthusiasts. The Committee would like to thank all who helped organize these events including; Betty Smith and Bill Stason (tennis tournament) and Jim Wolf (soccer). 122 This year's BBQ Dinner was a huge hit, with a record number of people feasting at tables and listening to the live music under tents. The Committee would like to thank all those who accepted reservations for us, in particular, Robin at Donelan's, the folks at 3S Pharmacy, the staff at Town Offices and the Library, and Deb and Dave at the Rec Department. Their efforts, along with Glow Stick sales people Susan Silver and Greg Welch, ensured that the day was not only fun but profitable as well. No fireworks show would take place without the donations of town residents and the collection and parking expertise provided by the Boy Scouts. In particular, we'd like to thank Paul Rice and his band of merry teenagers: Zakary Banks, Vincent Champion, Adam Cohen, David Hicks, Gus Holcomb, Brendan and Seamus Lennon, Ronald Otero, Jared Rice, Matt Taylor, Jerry Ulllman, Daniel Wolf, Dean Zaring and Scout Parent Leaders Bob Holcomb, Curtis Risley and Bob Wolf. As the fireworks ended, the skies opened up and the rain came; a perfect ending to a wonderful day. This year's Summer Concert Series in Pierce Park was expanded to four concerts and offered entertainment featuring performers with Lincoln ties. Thanks to Maureen Horigan of Omega Brass and Joe Masters of the Riverboat Stompers for bringing their groups to Lincoln. The crowds grew this year and fun was had by all. We look forward to seeing everyone at this year's events. 123 BEMIS LECTURE TRUSTEES Dan P. Dimancescu Sara Mattes Deborah Weisgall A variety of programs were presented in calendar year 1 996. Subsequent to the very popular full house at Brooks Auditorium for the Flash in the Pans in the fall of 1995, the program was followed in March of 1 996 by a panel presentation entitled "Women in China", reporting on the circumstances and outcomes of the controversial international conference of women in China the year before. In April of 1996 by a unique literary event, four nationally noted essayists (including Lincoln's own Patrick Hoy III, Jonathan Shay, Michael Norman, and George Garrett), and artist Ken Hruby gathered in an emotional reconciliation of their military experiences in Vietnam. The four writers read original essays written for the occasion with a backdrop of interpretive sculptures by Hruby. In May, the Bemis Trustees in cooperation with the DeCordova Museum hosted author and artist Dr. Frederick Franck. One time assistant to Dr. Albert Schweitzer in Africa, his life was devoted in ensuing years to a spiritual quest termed "radically trans-religious". His books on The Zen of Seeing, The Awakened Eye, and Art as a Way explored concepts of seeing and drawing as meditation. His ideas emergent from these books were shared in Lincoln in a lecture entitled: 'To See is to See the Sacred, To Look at It is to Miss It". In November, Mission Wolf returned to a full house with Sila and Guiness as "honored guests" bringing their human friends, Kent Weber and Tracy Brooks, with them. The audience shared in the experience of wolf reintroduction into Yellowstone Park and other areas of the United States. The year was also marked by a transition in Trustees from Adeline Naiman to Deborah Weisgall and the re-election of Dan Dimancescu. Citizens input on events is welcome as was underscored by numerous requests for a repeat of the lively Flash in the Pans concert (planned for 1997). 124 LINCOLN SCHOOL COMMITTEE Nathan Greene, Hanscom Representative Stephen Johnson, Member Beth Magnone, Hanscom Representative Kahris McLaughlin, METCO Representative Patty Mostue, Member Terry Perlmutter, Vice Chair Patti Salem, Member Patrick Phillipps, Chair Lincoln School Department Report Dr. Mark K. McQuillan, Superintendent No school year is without change. New kindergartners enroll, graduating 8th graders move on to high school, and changes in staffing and personnel are all predictable features in the life of a system. 1996 was no exception. In addition to enrolling more students than we have had in several years, 1996 marked the opening of the new Smith-Brooks complex, the hiring of Charles Ruopp, Principal of Brooks School, and the retirement and untimely death of Mr. Robert Budds, Director of Plant Operations and Maintenance. In 1996 we negotiated a new agreement with the Lincoln Teachers Association, won the contract to educate the students at Hanscom Air Force Base, and launched the first in a succession of workshops for Boston and Lincoln parents on combatting racism. By any standard, 1996 was a year of improvements, purposeful transitions, and continuity.

A ceremony in front of the new library featured Crawley Cooper, Henry Morgan, and Esther Braun. Joanne McManus was honored for her extraordinary dedication to the project, Charlie Hopkins and Brooks Mostue were celebrated for their prize-winning design of the weather vane that sits atop the bell tower, and principals McManus and Ruopp were congratulated for their labors. The 1995-1996 school year ended with the graduation of 54 eighth graders, and search for a new Director of Maintenance. 125 On July 4 after many long months, we learned that our proposal to provide educational services to the students at Hanscom Air Force Base was granted to the Lincoln Public Schools for a period of five years. This was very welcome, although not entirely unexpected, news. The contract awarded us sufficient money to start school with virtually all of our Hanscom programs intact, and only modest reductions in the budget. The integrated preschool program previously provided Hanscom youngsters at Magic Garden was moved to the Hanscom Middle School -- a change we have long advocated - and staff and positions reduced in April were restored. July brought other changes to Hanscom as well. Major Robert Roby and Barbara Messamore retired from their positions on the School Committee, and Colonel John A. Weimer and his family moved to Maxwell Air Force Base where he will be Vice Director of the Standards Systems Group. Collectively, their contributions to Hanscom Air Force Base and to our schools were many, and their support during the long hours of waiting for word on our bid proposal was much appreciated. As we paused to say goodbye to the good friend of our schools, we also welcomed Colonel John B. Piazza to our community. Colonel Piazza is an engaging leader, a strong advocate of technology in instruction, and a strong supporter of Lincoln's mission as a public school. New Policy on School Building Use In July, we also took steps to implement the Scho'ol Committee's new policy on building use and after-school programming with the Recreation Department, and to hire Jim Baker, our new Director of Plant Operations. With Mr. Baker and a new policy we: (1) assigned different priorities for building use, to accommodate more student uses than in the past; (2) shifted responsibility for scheduling classroom and space use from the Superintendent's office to the Recreation Department and the Smith and Brooks Schools; (3) required parents and community members wishing to rent or reserve space in the schools to observe the new policies; and (4) and asked that parents work directly with support personnel in each school when requesting use of classroom space. Our fine custodial staff was assigned new cleaning schedules, and a new evaluation system was implemented. Teacher Negotiations The summer months also occasioned several changes in our contractual arrangements with the Lincoln Teachers Association (LTA). In order to simplify the starting and ending of school, relieve overcrowding on our buses, and comply with the "Time and Learning" regulations of the 1993 Education Reform Act, the School Committee voted, after months of deliberation and dialogue with the LTA, to change the starting and ending times of instruction as follows: Hanscom Middle M.T.Th, F 8:00-2:30 W 8:00-12:15 Hanscom Primary M.T.Th, F 8:15-2:30 W 8:15-12:15 Brooks Middle M.T.Th, F 7:55-2:30 W 7:55-12:30 Smith Elementary MJ.Th, F 8:40-3:00 W 8:40-12:00 These changes were intended to accomplish several different goals. Among other things, the changes at Hanscom meant that instruction would end at the same time for all Base students. And in Lincoln, there would be sufficient time in the afternoon to complete a second bus run, so that middle schoolers would no longer have to endure long waits on the bus to allow for a common run for both schools. Under the new plan, Smith and Brooks students now ride at separate times. Despite this decided improvement, it is our hope that the new plan can be further revised in 1997 to allow for a common end to the school day on the Lincoln Campus. 126 Several other important developments emerged from our negotiations with the LTA. Among other things, we were able to reach a very positive settlement for a multi-year contract starting in September 1996. In addition to the time changes outlined above, the Committee was able to offer modest increases in salaries for all professional staff, improve working conditions and use of Wednesday planning periods, establish a teachers' mentor program, increase the number of days for summer curriculum and staff development, implement a new evaluation system for teacher performance, and restructure health insurance benefits for all teachers. The quality and nature of the settlement in many respects was nothing short of exceptional. The School Committee and I were deeply appreciative of the spirit and cooperation of all members of the LTA bargaining team ~ Ellen Bowles, Rose Vignola, Tina Duffy, Geoff Piece, Edie Baxter, Terri Nathanson, and Gian Criscitiello. Our conversations were frank, problem-centered, and always cordial. A new "mutual gains" bargaining process revolutionized our bargaining process and the contract proved to be a major step forward for all. We were especially indebted to Ellen Bowles, chairperson of the LTA's bargaining team, who, on more than one occasion, steered us out of troubled waters and kept us moving toward consensus. A Fall Assessment Policy and New Directions in 1996-1997 With such a successful summer, our opening in September was one of our best ever. By summer's end, we had completed much of the work we had planned for our curriculum development teams, the School Committee completed its systemwide assessment policy and the Committee began organizing its subcommittees to complete work on the School Department's financial policies and operating procedures. Its policy objectives include: • Develop plans and options to allow all students on each campus to start and end the school day at the same times. • Analyze the structure and working assumptions underlying the School Department's budget and develop short- and long-range plans for improving its efficiency, clarity, and usefulness in guiding policy and financial decisions. • Approve and implement a policy for assessing the quality and effectiveness of the Lincoln Public Schools. The School Committee vigorously pursued these goals this fall. Among other things, the Committee's Finance Oversight Team began developing multi-year financial projections, redefining how the School Department budget will be developed annually, and analyzing how best to match Lincoln's budget to its organizational structure. In January, the Committee will host a public forum on busing and bus fees, and in March the Assessment Steering Committee will provide the community with an overview of how the School Department will annually assess our schools, with each year of a comprehensive assessment program contributing new data on effectiveness and quality. This spring we will conduct a parent, student, and faculty survey on "school climate" and evaluate the internal organizational structure of the Hanscom schools. Robert Budds Certainly the most dispiriting event this fall was the death of Bob Budds, our former Director of Plant and Maintenance Operation, a part of the Lincoln system since 1974. Bob was an unusually kind man, always looking for ways to help people - from those he hired, to the many young men and women he coached - and to find the best in each person. He did so by always putting forth the best of himself and treating everyone with respect. His death is a loss to us all. 127 Antiracism Training for Boston and Lincoln Parents In the midst of sadness, however, there was also moments of inspiration. In October Carroll Blake, Poppy Milner, Amy Hood, and members of the faculty who have participated in the Eastern Massachusetts Initiative (EMI) began a project that is certain to be a milestone for the Lincoln Public Schools, and for school systems throughout the Commonwealth. With the help of grant moneys, and armed with the curriculum materials and exercises from EMI's course "Antiracism and Effective Classroom Practices," Mr. Blake and his staff sponsored a six-part seminar series on understanding and combatting racism. It involved parents from the Lincoln and Boston communities. The seminars explored how our institutions perpetuate and engender racism, how people of color experience life in this country, and what is needed to break the cycles of oppression that have separated Americans since the founding of our country. Parents participating in the event described this project as one of the most important ever sponsored by our schools, and it is certain to carry our system one step closer toward addressing the learning needs of all our students -- Boston, Lincoln, and Hanscom children alike. The work of Mr. Blake and his colleagues is a fitting tribute to METCO Inc., which will celebrate its 30th Anniversary this March, and strong evidence of continuing progress on meeting our mission around diversity. Curriculum and Instruction Our curriculum renewal plan entered its second year, and, like our EMI initiative, has begun to transform our schools. From my vantage point as Superintendent, I have watched as our curriculum leaders, faculty members and administrators have begun to internalize the processes and concepts needed to build a comprehensive curriculum, and, in doing so, how they have come face to face with some of the most vexing problems facing educators in this century. At the national level, as leaders debate the merits of a common curriculum in all states in the Union, in Massachusetts the Education Reform Act of 1993 requires all school districts and classrooms to align their curricula with State frameworks in mathematics, science, technology, fine arts, health, language arts, world languages, and social studies and to prepare for testing in grades 4, 8, and 10 in each of these content areas. Lincoln's curriculum renewal plan has already yielded many significant outcomes. Curriculum development teams in all subject areas have been formed and begun work. They have adopted a new health curriculum K-6, revised our middle school program in grades 7-8, written new curriculum guides for social studies K-8, created guides for world languages 5-8, built units for physical and life sciences for grades 2,3,4, and 5, completed the first draft of a K-8 scope and sequence for mathematics, revised our middle school mathematics program, conducted our first formal "blue ribbon" assessment of our mathematics program, and begun examining the prominence of the arts in our total academic program. We will formally assess our language arts program this winter, redefine our long-range goals for technology instruction and computer use in all classrooms, and devote a good portion of our spring working with the DeCordova Museum and Harvard University on a three-year grant aiming to investigate how the visual arts can offer insight to the study of core subjects like science or history. The effect of this activity has been to engage our system in an ongoing debate about how content and instructional processes can be joined purposefully to establish a rigorous, well-articulated set of learning experiences from each grade and each discipline. Without this careful delineation of content outcomes for each grade, our effectiveness as a system is diminished. This is certainly one of the most important points raised in current debates about the need for a national curriculum. It is fair to say that, as we move to the midpoint of our second year of the curriculum renewal plan, that we have taken several important steps forward, even if we have many more to complete. If this work is allowed to continue and work toward its destinations, I am confident that much of the promise of the plan will be realized, and that in a few years we can begin to reduce the plan's complexity. As I wrote to the Committee in my analysis of the 1996 Massachusetss Educational Assessment Program results: 128 As we look to a new round of assessments in 1998, one that will link more closely with curriculum frameworks aligned with each local district, we can anticipate tighter fits between state assessments and our own curriculum. And we can anticipate that these results, coupled with our own internal assessments, will further help us to improve. As a system, Lincoln continues to provide a good, academic program for all students. Lincoln's system wide scores in all areas reflect the presence of a solid curriculum, but one that continues to need to be refined and improved, modified and extended. Until this curriculum is fully documented and implemented in all schools--a task that began in earnest last year-it is likely that the variations seen in each school's performance will continue to be heavily influenced by student turnover, students' unfamiliarity with new concepts and approaches (if they are entering the district for the first time), and uncertain learning connections between each grade. Curriculum and instruction at Smith School, for example, suggests much of what is possible when students and teachers are given sufficient time and opportunity to clarify and pursue the goals of the system. But it is also possible, given Lincoln's size, the mobility of our student populations, and the continuous readjustments in our programs to accommodate new students, that the excellence we know to be present in aH of our schools will be masked by factors beyond our control. Factors that we can control we will control. Improvements that we can make, we will make. It is our intention to learn as much from our MEAP scores as we can, but it is also our intention to treat them with the caution they deserve. In this sense, then, our system's new initiatives in comprehensive assessment and curriculum renewal should provide much of what is missing from findings we have gathered since 1988. Final Thoughts 1996 was a year of change and transition. In thinking over all that has taken place and what has been accomplished this past year, I can only say that I am honored to be working with the professional staff in Lincoln and with such an excellent School Committee. Our newest members, Patty Mostue, Beth Magnone and Nathan Greene are certain to add much to our continued success in the months ahead, and our faculty and administrators are without question, among the very finest. I extend my thanks to all in Lincoln who have been so supportive of my efforts, and those of our faculty and administrators. Our parents and community members are always there to lend a hand and pitch in when needed, and your respect for all that we attempt to do is very evident -- as it was this past summer and fall when Jackie Lenth and so many others worked hundreds of hours to paint the Brooks School corridors. The community campaign to fund the the creation of a playground for the Smith School is only one more example of this spirit and dedication. These tangible signs of community support for our schools are extremely gratifying, and I count myself lucky to work with all of you. 129 CLASS OF 1996 Christen Adkins Hollie Bickerton J.

The first and second grades were moved from the Hartwell building into their new homes in the Smith building during the February, 1996 vacation. For the first time in many years, grades kindergarten through eight are now housed under one roof. One can walk from kindergarten to the Donaldson Auditorium without stepping outside the building, and on the way pass the wonderful new library which links Smith and Brooks schools. As soon as the Hartwell building was vacated by the first and second grades, it was renovated to accommodate the School Administration and School Committee. The new and renovated buildings were dedicated at the end of April, 1996, in a grand two-day celebration which included an Open House on Sunday for the citizens of Lincoln to view the facilities and an Open Classroom on the following Tuesday when interested citizens could observe the classrooms in action. All the students gathered on that morning to participate in the dedication and to unveil the new butterfly weathervane. In the spring and summer the final landscaping and site work was completed. The contractor is still on site, gradually attending to the "punch list" construction details which have not yet been accepted by the Committee. In the spring of 1997, the contractor will add a storage shed for the Brooks School lunch tables in the rear of the Field House. This will finally allow the gym to be used for the upper school lunch room as was originally planned. With that construction, the fund appropriated at the 1993 Annual Town Meeting for the purpose of repairing and renovating the Lincoln Public Schools will be exhausted. 133 LINCOLN-SUDBURY REGIONAL DISTRICT SCHOOL COMMITTEE Donna Coutu William Hewins, Vice-Chairman Janet Miller Steve Silverman David Wilson Sarah Cannon Holden, Chairman Keeping in mind that these annual reports constitute a part of the history of Lincoln- Sudbury, we highlight the extraordinary rather than the routine events of the past year. We also want to mention where we are in the continuing effort to maintain a successful high school. Following the resignation of Matthew King as Superintendent-Principal, we undertook a comprehensive and open search for his replacement. We gratefully acknowledge the formal input received from citizens, staff and students. In May John M. Ritchie, the principal at the Winchester High School, was appointed. We would like to thank Dr. King for his seven fine years at L-S. Also resigning this year after many years of service was Mr. Pat Mullen who tirelessly built the L-S Scholarship Fund to one million dollars. Over the years many students have benefited from these efforts. We are most grateful for his work. The work of L-S 21 is on-going. We have completed the first year of the extended block schedule and evaluating it is now a school wide goal. The Fitness Center is heavily used by students, staff and community members outside of class time. The World Language, Math and Science Computer Labs are used daily, and the Dyad on CD ROM received national recognition. At the invitation of the Teachers Association, members of the School Committee spent a day in October in classes followed by a reception at the library. While our population is increasing, at a pace faster than anticipated, we are doing all that we can to keep class sizes reasonable. We nave 60 more students this year than last. The Space Committee continues to study the best utilization of space at L-S. Over the summer our maintenance staff renovated the space vacated by the Carroll High School which is now occupied primarily by L-S Central. Although L-S's physical plant continues to be well maintained, the need for a renovated Rogers Education Center persists. The present theater is well below the standards of excellence and safety that are important to Lincoln and Sudbury. We strongly feel that a larger, more functional Rogers would be a great asset to our school and communities, and continue to work with Sudbury's Investment Priority Committee to bring the issue before Sudbury. (Support has already been voted in Lincoln). Steve Silverman ran successfully for Fred Pryor's vacated seat on the School Committee. Alex Yates and Paul Kresanowski were our student representatives. We have recently instituted a policy of having a report from the student rep at each meeting. As we approach the completion of Lincoln-Sudbury's fourth decade, the School Committee continues to be proud of a vibrant high school where students are exposed to an outstanding facility and staff, and benefit from the continued support of the member towns. 134 ANNUAL REGIONAL DISTRICT ELECTION The Regional District Election was held in conjunction with the elections in Lincoln and Sudbury on Monday, March 25, 1996 and certifications of the results were received from Nancy J. Zuelke, Town Clerk of Lincoln, and Kathleen D. Middleton, Assistant Town Clerk of Sudbury, as follows: For two 3-year terms: Lincoln Sudbury Total Janet C. Miller Frances Caspe Stephen Silverman Write-ins Blanks Total 748 671 1,419 140 454 594 255 796 1,051 3 3 635 402 1.037 1,778 2,326 4,104 Respectfully submitted, Maryellen Gallagher District Clerk 135 SUPERINTENDENT - PRINCIPAL'S REPORT Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School continues to maintain and even enhance its reputation as an outstanding and unique public high school, with a deep commitment to providing excellent and appropriate programs for all of its students. A number of changes have taken place at L-S in recent years, and the programs and policies that have been instituted recently continue to contribute to the overall life of the school. The various LS-21 proposals, designed to shape the school for the next century, are all either being actively implemented or actively studied. New drama and art courses have been introduced, physical education courses have been reoriented towards health and fitness, a new block schedule, with longer classes to provide more variety in teaching strategies, has been introduced, and the already outstanding academic program is undergoing constant refinement. This year, L-S has been joined by sixteen new teachers, many of whom were hired to fill in for teachers on leave or on sabbatical. Energetic new staff members are a wonderful addition to the school culture, and a thoughtfully conceived new teacher orientation program has been very helpful in getting our newest colleagues acclimated to the school culture. As noted in last year's report, the school has continued to upgrade its technological resources, having added Mathematics and Science Computer Labs over the past two years, and most recently a technology center for the Foreign Language Department. Progress is underway to continue this program, with a Humanities Lab and an Art Department Lab both in the planning stages. Also, as any member of the school well knows, electronic mail communication forms a big part of both student and faculty life. The privatization of both the food service and cleaning service operations has been a real success at L-S. While we continue to evaluate these programs carefully, it is clear that each has resulted in significant savings to the district. Moreover, the excellent work done by the custodial and maintenance crews has reduced costs that would otherwise have been paid to contract work out. Over the past summer, classrooms were renovated, and a new space built for the Central programs; the fact that all the work was done internally is a source of pride and savings. Student life at Lincoln-Sudbury is purposeful and productive, with students involved in their academic pursuits, drama, music, art, athletics, and various social and community-service oriented clubs and activities. The school has a well-earned reputation for excellent and innovative programs, and we hope to continue our successes in the coming year. 136 LINCOLN-SUDBURY REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES CLASS OF 1996 Jeffrey Adams Douglas Paul Adams, Jr. Christopher Alexis Sarah Ali Amanda Arenson Alison Ball Claire Selva Barnes Laura Bellizzi Melissa Bellizzi* Jessica Bendel Tracy Ellen Berkowitz Jennifer Berman Jessica Berry April Lee Bishop Mark Bisson Sara Bloomberg* Meaghan Boeing* Jeffrey L.

Applications from high school seniors are accepted until early April. The Committee interviews all applicants in late Spring, and allocates available resources to those deserving students most in need. In 1996, thanks to the generosity of the Town's citizens, businesses and churches, we were able to provide much needed freshman year aid to two students. We are sincerely appreciative of these contributions, and of the portfolio management provided by the Commissioners of Trust Funds. Interest income provides a significant portion of the funds available for distribution each year. For many years the Trustees of the Ogden Codman Trust have been very generous in providing a "matching" donation to the Lincoln Scholarship Fund, which doubles the impact of all contributions made by others. On behalf of the students, we are thankful, and ask for your continued support and kind generosity. 146 LINCOLN SUDBURY SCHOLARSHIP FUND, INC. Eileen Berkel Sudbury Member Mark Dakss Sudbury Director Thomas Danko Faculty Member Evelyn Keily Lincoln Member Ann Kramer Sudbury Member Alice Levine Sudbury Member Kate Levine Sudbury Student Rep Karen Mahoney Sudbury Member Eileen McEleney Sudbury Member Annalisa Notaro Faculty Secretary Emil Ragones Sudbury Treasurer Gisele Sampson Faculty Director Mary Jane Sanders Sudbury Coordinator Betty Smith Lincoln Member David Wilson Sudbury Director David Wright Sudbury Student Rep Patrick Mullen Sudbury President In May 1987, Virginia Kirshner, an English and Drama teacher at LSRHS, had a dream of a $1,000,000 endowment to fund scholarships for graduating seniors. The program at that time was a mail solicitation program across the towns of Lincoln and Sudbury. It yielded $4,000 and Springthing generated $5,000. Clearly this was not meeting the needs. Since the cost of education was rising rapidly, Virginia said we had to do more both in the number and size of scholarships. In 1988, the Lincoln Sudbury Scholarship Fund was established and a campaign to raise $1,000,000 launched. Thanks to the generosity of the residents of Lincoln and Sudbury, support from businesses such as Chiswick and Raytheon, and help from the Sudbury Foundation in the form of $250,000 in matching funds, the endowment had a market value of $1,031,637 at the end of this fiscal year. Unfortunately, over the same period, the cost of education at a private college increased 93%. Said another way, the $1,031,637 is worth $534,527 in 1987 dollars. Based on this, the Directors of the Fund have decided to continue the fall campaign comprised of direct mail and a phonathon as a way to meet the increasing needs of our graduates. Our goal is to increase the value of the scholarships awarded. Scholarships are funded by the net earnings of the endowment and the direct proceeds of Springthing. Additional scholarships are solicited from businesses. A faculty committee selects the recipients based on the following criteria: need, academic achievement and community involvement. The fund is available to Lincoln-Sudbury senior class members with definite college plans. 147 The recipients of the 1996 scholarships awards were: Lincoln-Sudbury Scholarship Fund Scholarships Melissa Bellizzi Saritha Dhruvakumar Maya Jairam Ronny Kubat Laith Naoum Kevin Ten Brinke Dale Walker Voeung Chau Lars Drummond Eva Klein Sean Maher Rana Naoum Andrew Tsou Joanna Ward Named Scholarships Andrew Koyfman Eric LaHaise Amalia Serafim Jennifer Coogan Whitney Drake Mark Nesky Alexandra Yates John Taranto Jennifer Coogan Joanna Thompson Robin Powers Jennifer Hickey Jillian Hickey Jennifer Isenberg Jody Lukens-Bober Tara Misera Laura Bellizzi Daniel Mirman Elizabeth Varghese Kahn Nguyen Kimberly Hamill Kevin Ten Brink Bramwell B.

Each town committed to pay a certain share of the costs, and each town was assigned a quota of students it could send to the school. It soon became clear that some towns (such as Arlington) exceeded its quota, while others (such as Lincoln) sent far fewer students than its quota would allow. While the regional commitment remains, Lincoln's underutilization of its quota (one graduate in 1996) represents a problem for the town, not the school. If Lincoln were to increase its attendance at Minuteman, its assessment would increase very little - and the cost per pupil would, of course, decrease. The following report contains some information that, hopefully, will redirect parent and pupil interest to this wonderful resource in our own backyard. Minuteman's growing emphasis is on academic excellence (one student became Minuteman's first national semi-finalist in the National Merit Scholarship competition last year) and preparation for college, which a majority of graduates now attend. A recent study completed by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern shows that post high school learning combined with specific career training makes graduates very attractive to employers. With its many advanced credit contracts with local colleges, Minuteman's strong academic and technical programs are paying great dividends to graduates. With only 15% of available Massachusetts jobs in manufacturing in 1990 (down from 40% in 1950), the majority of the best jobs of the future can now be found in technical, professional, managerial, and high level sales careers, in the "service" sector. Focusing on this evolution, Minuteman now prepares biotechnicians, environmental technicians, telecommunication workers, electromechanical specialists, builders trained in energy saving, graphics technicians with computer skills, craft and sales workers who are very computer literate, etc. - all with preparation for continued learning in college, business-industry programs, and beyond. Students must be ready for the careers of tomorrow, not the careers of yesterday. In connection with career preparation, Minuteman has taken the leadership role in a new Metro South West School-to-Careers Consortium, in partnership with all of this district's feeder junior high and high schools, Regional Employment Boards, the Department of Employment and Training, and private industry members. Their programs provide access to private industry employment, specific training, and shadowing for students. In Minuteman's case, a mentor 150 program is being developed. Career awareness, readiness, and experience serve to make Minuteman graduates eminently employable, whether directly from school or after college studies. An effort to model integration of applied learning and an interdisciplinary approach to curriculum is underway in a School-to-Careers program reaching into the Consortium's feeder schools (approximately 36,000 students) with the aid of a million dollar 3 year grant. Other grants have supported funding for the expansion of a new science-technology career training. The school can attract important funding and equipment support because it has received international recognition, and national awards from the U.S. Secretary of Education for its outstanding technical programs. The school regularly attracts visitors and educators from other states and abroad who wish to duplicate its programs. A high level of credibility has resulted from its excellent level of evaluation for positive student impact. Honors for achievement in state and national VICA competitions (many gold medals), the New England Flower Show (many blue ribbons), DECA conferences, athletic championships in soccer, wrestling, basketball and softball, are legion. Early Childhood majors recently won a U.S. Department of Agriculture team nutrition competition. Closer to home, the school's enrollment is at capacity, with a long waiting list. There has been a 22% rise in member town freshman (under the CHOICE program, seats not filled from the 16 member towns can be used by communities outside the region). Highlights for 1996 include: a new telecommunications program with sophisticated and updated equipment leading to a new Telecommunications educational major; for students who need support in achieving higher success in reading and math skills, programs are available to help the average student gain more than 3 to 4 years in demonstrated increased reading skills in a matter of months. (Each entering student is tested for his/her learning style). Whether preparing for a job after high school or further education, it is essential that students be capable of reading technically advanced manuals and of making sophisticated calculations. Finally, the school is in the first year of a 3 year program to network the school and facilitate Internet capability. With all these advances, it is important to note that, in addition to providing a comprehensive education to day students, Minuteman resources are available to post graduates and adults, at no cost to in-district residents. A course in cable technician training, for example, is currently offered at a tuition of $5,000, but residents of the 16 towns pay nothing. Such community outreach reflects Minuteman Science-Technology High School's educational commitment to lifetime learning, a cornerstone of its vision and philosophy. During the past year, the School Committee was saddened by the death of long-time member Fred Reed of Lancaster. Two very dedicated, long-time members left the School Committee: former Chairpersons Nyles Barnert of Lexington and Elaine Sweeney of Wayland. Also leaving the Committee was Herbert Yood of Belmont. The district thanks all of these people for their years of service. 151 ENROLLMENT OCTOBER 1, 1996 TOWN 2000 im. 192S 1997 Percentage TOTAL Acton Arlington Belmont Bolton Boxborough Carlisle Concord Dover Lancaster Lexington Lincoln Needham Stow Sudbury Wayland Weston Tuition Choice 4 32 13 6 1 7 7 11 12 9 6 1 1 28 104 4 41 7 1 2 6 1 11 9 4 4 3 1 54 89 4 26 6 2 2 1 5 2 7 2 11 5 4 2 51 64 2 22 8 2 1 10 3 5 2 6 11 6 1 54 32 7 20 12 4 1 4 6 1 5 19 2 3 1 2 3 5 32 Q 21 141 46 13 6 8 34 2 28 51 6 36 30 21 7 7 219 290 TOTAL 242 237 194 166 127 966 CLASS OF 1996 MINUTEMAN TECH Jennifer Hagopian 152 coc\i'<roc\j!-coa>Lr>o>c\jT-'i-cvi ^ r^ ^j- oo_ in co_ 05 oo co to co cm I s - i^- co" *" in -r-" cvT t-' Tt i-" t-" r-" "t: tn c ® £ o h- cc If CM O Tj- CM O O CO CD CM CM o m CO o o o r- O h- O) o? ho u_ o z o cc < CL S o o UJ O) D > 3 >■ O U_ < N^OOinr-NCftS 1-COCMCOCOi-Tj-T- CMcocnmococom h-" cm" o" -<t in cd" i-" co CO CM CM CO 00 CO CD in i- in •*■ t- Tf t- co~ cm" i-COCMCOCOt-'^-T- cm_ cq o> in o_ co_ co in K cm" o" "^r" in cd" t-" co" CO CM CM CO CO CO CD in v- in n- i- ->tf- COCOCDr-COCOCOCO coino-»-h-como ■r- CM_ h»_ o_ cm_ h»_ CM_ CDCDCOCOCOOinCD COCD"^COCDTl-00in CO O 'f ^ tO t- COCD ^■CM^-COCOT-COCDinT-COCDi-CD ocDocoi-i-^tmcDminooco cocooi-cMcoi-i-cocoocDt^in co" co" cd" K o" cd" tj-" cd" o" i-" in" cm" cd" cm" COi-CMI^-COCOt-COi-CO i-t- mo^T-oomcooooocMr^ h-CMcococoincoT-h-coinTj-Ttco <D rTCOrt h- Tf CD CD 00 CD_ CD_ t- CD 1^.

Unlike the override, which results in a permanent increase in the town's levy limit, a capital exclusion is added to the levy limit or ceiling only for the year in which the project is being undertaken. Likewise, a debt exclusion is added to the levy limit or levy ceiling for the life of the debt only. Both of these exclusions require a 2/3 vote of the Selectmen in order to be placed on a ballot, with a majority of the electorate needed for authorization. Free Cash This is money that had been appropriated but not spent for various budget line items together with unforeseen revenues. These monies are certified annually by the Department of Revenue as the town's free cash. After discussions with bond rating agencies and various financial institutions, the Finance Committee and the Selectmen have agreed on a policy of maintaining a level of free cash equal to a minimum of 5% of the operating budget. In addition, we agree that it is prudent to spend no more than about 50% of the free cash in any given year. With this policy in place we should maintain our current high bond rating of Aa1 , which should keep down the cost of borrowing. Levy (Tax), Levy Ceiling , and Levy Limit The property tax levy, or simply the levy, is the revenue the Town can raise through real and personal property taxes. In Massachusetts, municipal revenues to cover expenditures are raised through the property tax levy, State Aid, and local receipts. The property tax levy is usually the largest source of revenue. Proposition 2 1 /2 places constraints on the magnitude of the levy imposed by a town as well as the amount by which the levy can be increased from one year to the next. The two limits on property taxes imposed by Proposition 2 1 /2 are: levy ceiling - This establishes an overall cap on the levy. Ordinarily a town cannot levy more than 2.5% of the total full and fair cash value of all taxable real and personal property. levy limit - The maximum levy allowed in a given year is the levy limit. This will always be equal to or less than the levy ceiling. The levy limit for any fiscal year amounts to the previous year's levy limit (less excluded debt) increased by 2.5% plus new growth, exclusions, and any override authorized by the electorate. Levy Increase The difference in the levy between one year and the next is the levy increase. This number is often represented as a percent. The Town may set its levy at any amount up to its levy limit. It is important to recognize that the actual levy may increase more than 2.5% in a given year. This is allowable under Proposition 2 1 /2. REPORT of the FINANCE COMMITTEE of the TOWN OF LINCOLN for the FISCAL YEAR JULY 1,1997 - JUNE 3 0, 1998 LINCOLN, MASSACHUSETTS LINCOLN FINANCE COMMITTEE Thomas Black Georgene B. Herschbach Jacquelyn Lenth Marcia A. Roehr Alvin L. Schmertzler Peter J. Watkinson Gary A. Taylor, Chairman Judith Wong, Secretary COVER: Something old, something new As we move towards the next century, it became self-evident that our Public Safety Building (top photo), constructed in 1958, needed substantial modernization to keep up with current codes and technology. The renovations and additions (shown in the model photo at the bottom) will achieve our current needs, while preserving within the new complex usable portions of the old structure. We wish to thank the Public Safety Building Committee and all Town boards and citizens of Lincoln for their support and help in the design process. Preface The Finance Committee (FinCom) has embarked on a planning process which takes into account both the present and future financial needs of the Town of Lincoln. Throughout this process we have been mindful of Lincoln citizens' dual mandate: to provide first-rate Town services and also to control spending. It has been a special challenge to satisfy both aspects of this mandate, particularly during the current cycle of renewal of major components of our physical plant - our elementary schools and public safety building. Careful analysis of the future consequences of spending today has led to some difficult choices: capital projects postponed or forgone, and constraints on all operating budgets. We had to make compromises to keep expenditures aligned with resources, both Free Cash and projected revenues. The Town will still spend more than $18 million in the next fiscal year, and in our opinion, will spend it well. We can be very proud of the schools and services available in Lincoln. We can also be proud of and grateful for the competent and devoted employees who serve us so well. The Finance Committee has revised further our Annual Report with the goal of increasing its usefulness to readers. In particular, we have rearranged the Table of Contents such that the basic information about the Town Budget and special issues before us - Budget Overview, Expenses, Revenues, and Balancing the Budget - is presented in the first eight pages of this booklet. Also the Glossary has been moved to the inside cover for ready access. Please note that the budget numbers for General Government are different from those printed in our last report. These changes are the result of the new account structure in the software recently adopted by the Town's Financial Office. The adjustments make all years' budgets comparable. We hope you find our Annual Report helpful. Your suggestions for further improvements are always welcome.

This parsimony amidst apparent plenty is, we believe, justified by our financial projections. These indicate that while free cash and other resources might meet Lincoln's near-term fiscal needs, restraining growth in operating budgets is necessary to put the Town on a sound financial footing for the long term. Budget planning for the Town is dominated in the near term by high levels of debt service from construction projects at the school and the public safety facility. Debt service affects tax rates directly through debt exclusions passed by previous Town Meetings. These translate into relatively large tax increases in the next two fiscal years with smaller increases thereafter as excluded debt declines. In the longer term the pressing issue is operating expenditures that are growing faster than projected revenues. To resolve this problem we can either raise revenues or lower expenditures. The Finance Committee believes that fiscal prudence and recent messages from Lincoln voters require that every effort first be made to lower expenditures before seeking to raise revenues through overrides. A positive developmnt this year is the successful conclusion of collective bargaining with Lincoln's employee unions. This yielded not only reasonable salary increases, but also a restructuring of employee health insurance that will substantially reduce costs. The FinCom commends all participants in this process for their diligence and goodwill. Another positive factor is our large free cash balance. This is due to delay of the Public Safety Building Project (interest on unused funds) and to Lincoln citizens' surprisingly robust appetite recently for new automobiles (excise tax receipts). Against this background, the FinCom has sought two objectives. The first is to minimize the tax impact of recent construction projects. Here we propose to employ stabilization funds and other available monies to reduce excluded debt. Free cash would also be used liberally to fund operating budgets and pressing capital needs. These steps hold tax increases in FY98 and FY99 below the FinCom target of 5%. The second objective is to retard growth in expenditures. The FinCom recommended cuts of approximately $125,000 from budgets proposed by the Town, schools, and library. In addition we urged reductions of about $175,000 from Warrant Articles supported initially by the Capital Planning Committee. We appreciate the cooperation we received from all the agencies involved and believe these reductions will not materially compromise services. Proposed expenditures and projected revenues are set out in Tables 1 and 2 and illustrated in Figures 1 and 2. 2 Overall and operating expenditures are up respectively 'Terms appearing in the text in bold type are defined in the glossary. 2 For convenience, numbers in Tables 1 & 2 and in operating budgets are in thousands of dollars. 11.3% and 4.8%. The Town's revenue requirements are met under the FinCom proposal with a tax increase of 4.5% and the application of $1 .24 million in free cash. Expenses The increase in overall expenditures of more than 11% (see Table 1) occurs even after Finance Committee reductions in proposed budgets and warrant requests of approximately $300,000. This jump is somewhat less alarming than it might otherwise appear because a significant portion of it is due to non-recurring factors - debt service and Warrant Articles for replacement of the Town's capital stock. Debt service is peaking this year and thus will not contribute further to growth in expenditures, unless the Town assumes new obligations. The high level of Warrant Articles reflects the need to replace our aging fleet of vehicles and to complete our investment in computer technology. These expenditures too should begin to decline next year. The remainder of the Town's expenditures, its operating budgets, are up 4.8%. This rate of growth, even after paring by the FinCom, remains a cause for concern because it exceeds both inflation and the projected rate of growth in Lincoln's revenues. Areas showing particularly high growth are the Public Works Department and the schools. Because these increases are driven by factors that will continue to influence costs, they complicate keeping Lincoln's budgets in balance in the long term. Public Works expenditures are rising because of Lincoln's participation in NESWC, a cooperative arrangement among many municipalities for the disposal of trash. Under this long-term contract, negotiated in the 1 980s, Lincoln is obligated to pay tipping fees that will escalate sharply over the next several years. Costs at the Lincoln schools and at Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School (LSRHS) are rising faster than inflation, despite reasonable salary increases. Growth in enrollments and special education requirements drive these increases. Demographics and trends in special education suggest such factors will continue to pressure budgets. Lincoln's assessment for high school costs will likely increase nearly 10% per year over the next several years due to the rising percentage of Lincoln students at LSRHS. For the Lincoln campus enrollment growth, more special needs students, and higher costs of operating newly expanded facilities will drive budgets upward. In this budget the FinCom has sought to cut costs wherever it can and to push Town agencies for better productivity. We shall continue to do this. Ultimately, however, there is a finite amount that can be wrung in this manner from expenditures; further budget tightening can only come through reductions in services. Lincoln provides an extraordinary level of service for a town its size. If citizens continue to demand services at this level, revenues will eventually have to be raised to support them.

Under Proposition 2h, property tax increases in any year are limited to 2.5% overj the previous year's levy limit (net of excluded debt) plus any revenues attributable \o\ new construction. For FY98 the Proposition 2H levy limit is $10.5 million. Revenuesij based upon new construction are estimated at $160,000. Additional tax revenues may be raised through debt exclusions or overrides. No.*) override is contemplated this year. Previously the Town has voted to exclude debtil service associated with numerous land acquisitions and construction projects (see section entitled Debt Service). In FY98, revenues to cover excluded debt amounting* to $1.26 million must be raised net of grant and stabilization fund monies and Schoolil Building Project reimbursement from the State Facilities Siting Board (SFSB). Thusi the overall amount to be collected through taxes, the sum of the levy limit, newl construction, and excluded debt, would be $1 1 .94 million. As indicated in Table 2, this represents a tax increase for FY98 of 4.5%. Other sources of funds are: local receipts, State Aid, available funds, and free cash. Local receipts include motor vehicle excise taxes, charges for such items as recreational programs and ambulance service, license and permit fees, and investment income. For FY98 estimates of these sources have been increased substantially to nearly $1 .9 million due largely to a jump in vehicle excise tax receipts. State Aid (net of State charges) is projected at $1.84 million including the $681,036 from the SFSB. Available funds totaling $1.72 million for FY98 consist mainly of highway funds ($217,173) and water revenues ($935,310), which are either earmarked or simply pass through the budget without providing operating funds. This year available funds would also include $196,000 from a Landfill Capping Grant and $225,000 from thej stabilization fund we propose be applied to reduce excluded debt and the tax rate. Free cash represents unused funds from past budgets now available to the Town for appropriation. It consists of unspent appropriations returned in previous fiscal years and of revenues received in excess of budget estimates. Because there is a two-year lag in free cash accounting, the current free cash balance of $2.41 million results from actions relating to FY96 and earlier years. This balance is net of $230,000 voted for the Public Safety Building Project overrun at the recent Special Town Meeting. As explained in the following section, the FinCom recommends drawing down free cash over the next several years to the minimum levels deemed necessary to maintain fiscal stability and to assure attractive financing terms for the Town. For FY98 Free cash use would amount to $1 .24 million, about 52% of the existing balance. Revenues in the proposed budget, including the use of free cash, total $18.98 million. Net of flow-through items and various amounts that must be paid to other governmental agencies or held for tax abatements, funds remaining for appropriation are $18.10 million.

As indicated earlier, this is driven in part by financial projections that show operating budgets increasing faster than can be sustained with property taxes under the Proposition 2 1 /2 formula. Future considerations are not the entire problem, however, as current deficits also contribute to Finance Committee concerns. Without overrides, expected revenues from property taxes, local receipts, State Aid, and so on are projected to increase at a rate of about 3.8% annually over the next five years exclusive of excluded debt. Budgets initially proposed to the Finance Committee by Town departments and the schools, along with fairly optimistic assumptions about future growth in costs, yielded projections of annual increases in expenditures net of debt service of over 4.2%. Requested budgets and Warrant Articles for FY98 also exceeded expected revenues for FY98 by more than $1 .5 million. While it would have been possible to supply this amount from the current free cash balance, we felt it would be imprudent to do so for two reasons. The first is that to draw the Town's $2.41 million in free cash down by $1 .5 million would violate Finance Committee guidelines limiting the use of free cash in any year to 50% of the existing balance. Even more fundamental, however, is the threat posed by the combination of the current deficit and growth in expenditures exceeding growth in revenues. This combination leads inevitably to increasing deficits. Under these circumstances, the FinCom has thus felt compelled to advise Town agencies to bring growth in expenses more in line with expected revenues. This has meant reductions from proposed operating budgets and capital spending approximating $300,000. As a result, the use of free cash required in FY98 is more consistent with FinCom guidelines, and expected operating expenditures in future years have declined. Even with these cuts, growth in costs, driven by factors described in the Expenses section, will remain substantial. Deficits will persist over the next several years regardless of continued financial vigilance. Thus the Finance Committee expects free cash to be spent down to minimum prudent levels by FY01, barring any material change in circumstances. Other Town resources such as the stabilization fund will also have been depleted. Budget cuts never come easily. The Finance Committee wishes to thank the DPW, Town Offices, the Library and the schools for cooperating in this difficult process. A special note of appreciation is due the Executive Secretary, the School Committee Negotiating Team and their counterparts from Town and school employee bargaining units who concluded the recent contract negotiations so successfully. Long Range Planning After the spring 1996 Town Meeting, the Moderator, Jack French, appointed a Capital Planning Committee to address current and future capital needs of Lincoln. Members of this body include one representative each from the Selectboard, the Schools, the Finance Committee, and the Library. There are also two representatives from the Town at large. The Executive Secretary and the Finance Director are ex-officio members. The Capital Planning Committee was asked to consider future expenditures on any tangible assets with a useful life of at least five years and valued at $15,000 or more. Using a recent inventory of Town assets that included an evaluation of their condition and a recommended maintenance schedule, Town agencies each submitted a prioritized list of capital needs. This list included planning studies and design services for projects that will result in a request for future funding in excess of $15,000. The Committee met with the various boards to discuss their requests for capital expenditures and then prepared a capital spending plan for FY98 through FY02. Subsequent meetings were required to accommodate the needs of the Public Safety Building Committee and the changing financial projections provided by the Finance Committee. Following its deliberations, the Capital Planning Committee initially recommended a FY98 capital budget of about $1 .1 million. At the urging of the FinCom this was reduced to $992,000. Their full report appears in the Town Report. To keep the Town's expenditures in line with projected revenues, however, the Finance Committee recommends to the Town a smaller capital budget of $920,000. To reach this level, several warrants have either been withdrawn or reduced by sponsoring agencies. General Government FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change $981 $1,211 $1,185 -2.1% General Information General Government includes: Selectboard, Finance Committee, Town Offices, Legal Services, Conservation Commission, Assessors, Town Clerk, Town Building Maintenance, Consulting, Elections and Registration, Planning Board, Board of Appeals, Town Report, and Reserve Fund. The Town Office accounts include personnel costs and administrative and financial department expenses. NOTE: This year the following accounts were relocated to different departments: Town Engineer and Tree Warden to Public Works, Land Management to Culture and Recreation. As noted above, the following accounts were transferred to General Government from other accounts or departments: Town Report (Expense) and Reserve Fund from Unclassified. Key Issues • There has been an overall decline in expenses despite increases in legal and data processing department costs, largely as a result of significant reductions in the Town Offices Personnel accounts. Warrant Articles #10 Roadside Path $140,000 Construct Bedford roadside path. #1 1 Roadside Path $100,000 Petition article to extend 117 roadside path. #13 Computers $171 ,000 Continued upgrade of Town system. #30 Conservation Truck $ 20,000 Replace old/inadequate electric vehicle. #31 Pierce Park $ 15,000 Drainage improvements. #32 Postage Machine $ 6,500 Replace Town Office postage machine. #33 Town Bldg. Maint. $ 71,915 Preventative maintenance and repairs. 10 Public Safety FY96 Actual FY97 FY98 Budaet Proposed FY97/FY98 Chanae $1,607 $1,682 $1,773 5.4% General Information Public Safety includes Building Inspection, the Department of Weights and Measures, and the dispatch and delivery of police, fire, and emergency medical services. Key Issues • The budget increase requested is due, in part, to anticipated overtime for: the juvenile officer, additional traffic patrol, training mandated by the State, and escort of prisoners to out-of-town lock-up facilities during building construction. The cost of additional traffic patrols will be partially offset by revenues collected in fines. • Maintenance and repair expenses will continue at an elevated level until older vehicles are replaced. The ambulance was replaced in FY97, but other vehicles have exceeded their expected useful life of 20 years. • The purchase of two police cruisers is proposed under Warrant Article #15, as part of our standard replacement program. • The upgrade of radio equipment and the construction of a tower and antenna for the new public safety building is requested under Warrant Article #19. • A 4 x 4 pick-up truck with water tank is requested under Warrant Article #16. This vehicle would provide off-road access for brush fires or emergency rescue and would be used instead of a fire engine for routine Fire Department inspections. Warrant Articles #15 Police Cruisers $52,000 Scheduled replacement . #16 Pick-up Truck w/Tank $15,000 For off-road access in emergencies. #1 9 Radio Tower & Antenna $35,000 For the new public safety building. 11 Elementary Schools FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change $4,669 $4,907 $5,208 6.1% General Information The elementary schools encompass kindergarten through the eighth grade on two campuses - the Lincoln Schools campus and the Hanscom Air Force Base campus. Enrollment in the Lincoln Schools totals 624. The new school facility has been in operation since the beginning of the current school year. There have been additional costs of operation for the larger campus such as utility and custodial fees. At the Hanscom campus, the total student enrollment is 617. The Lincoln School Committee has been awarded the contract to operate the Hanscom campus for the next five years, the cost of which is fully funded by the federal government. Key Issues Several fundamental factors are creating pressure to increase the budget beyond the 3% guideline established by the Finance Committee: • Increased enrollment over previous years is a result of growth in the Town's school-age population and the retention of students at the Brooks School. Enrollment grew by 66 students this year and is projected to increase by 14 next year. As a result, the school system has had to add faculty to maintain the class size policy established by the School Committee. • The new, larger Lincoln school building requires more heat, light, and telephone service. Utility costs have risen $58,000, an increase of 25%. • As the general enrollment of the schools has increased, so too has the enrollment in special needs. Currently there are 116 students receiving services compared to 107 students last year, an increase of 8.4%. The goal of our program is to educate Lincoln's special needs children on campus, which is better for the children and more cost effective for the Town. Because of the high per pupil cost, additions to SPED enrollment have a major impact on the budget. 12 Warrant Articles # 8 Educational Reform $224,505 #24 Smith Lighting $ 22,000 #25 Oil Tanks Replacement $ 70,000 #26 Brooks Bathrooms $ 17,000 #27 Brooks Fieldhouse $ 10,000 #28 Smith Room #125 $ 13,000 Pass-through of state funds.

The FinCom does not support passage of Article #24. 13 Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change LSRHS $10,561 $11,364 $11,926 4.9% Lincoln Assessment $ 1,201 $ 1,338 $ 1,482 10.8% General Information The LSRHS student population comes from both Lincoln and Sudbury. Projected enrollment for FY98 is 1,084 students, 85% from Sudbury and 15% from Lincoln. Current enrollment in both towns' elementary schools indicates that the proportion of Lincoln students at LSRHS will continue to increase over the next several years. Regional school district budgets carry expenses normally included in the Town's operating budget for non-regional schools. Typically these costs are the school's debt service payments and employee benefits such as pensions, workers' compensation, and health and liability insurance. Capital equipment that could be submitted to the towns as warrant articles may also be included. The Rogers Theater renovation project ($1.95 million), approved by Lincoln voters in 1994, is still pending approval by the Town of Sudbury. Key Issues • Enrollment is projected to increase by 119 students (12%) next year. Lincoln's proportion of students is expected to rise from this year's 14% to 15%, thereby increasing Lincoln's share of the budget expenses in FY98. • The total FY98 budget increase of $562,073 (4.9%) provides level service for a larger student population. • The total FY98 assessment to be paid by the Towns is $9.85 million. Lincoln's share is $1.48, up $144,238 (10.8%). • Salaries comprise the major increase in the budget - up $597,254 (8.2%). The additional faculty (7.2 new positions) are needed to respond to larger enrollments and to meet standards mandated by the State. Warrant Articles None 14 Minuteman Science-Technology High School FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change Total $11,485 $11,859 $12,605 6.5% Lincoln Assessment $ 65 $ 107 $ 86 -19.6% General Information The Minuteman Science-Technology High School offers vocational-technical training in more than twenty-five different fields as well as a full college preparatory academic program. Minuteman-Tech is supported by sixteen member towns in the region and accepts "choice" students from many other communities. Key Issues • The decline in our assessment is attributable primarily to a decline in enrollment of Lincoln students. The FY98 amount is based upon an estimate of support funds to be provided by the State. The final amount will not be available until after this document has gone to press. • It is anticipated that there will be a significant increase in total enrollment from the region's schools. This will reduce the number of "choice" students who pay a significantly lower tuition than do those from the region's schools. This will have the effect of lowering per pupil assessments for member towns. • An attempt was made to have the legislature raise the payment for "choice" students to an amount closer to that paid for pupils from member towns. The effort failed, but it is anticipated that another attempt will be made in the upcoming session of the legislature. Warrant Articles None 15 Public Works & Facilities FY96 Actual $888 FY97 Budget $1,015 FY98 Proposed $1,133 FY97/FY98 Change 11.6% General Information Public Works & Facilities includes road and roadside maintenance, snow plowing, the operation of the transfer station, and other maintenance and support services for the Town, Engineering and Tree Warden. NOTE: This year, as noted previously, the following accounts were transferred from General Government: Town Engineer and Tree Warden. Key Issues • Excluding the increased charges for NESWC of $78,218 and the new out-sourced engineering expense of $26,780, the DPW budget increased by 3.0%. Elimination of the Town Engineer and obtaining engineering services from Concord and consulting engineers has resulted in substantial savings. • The Town is aggressively pursuing reductions in NESWC tipping fees. Failing that, we will terminate the agreement at the earliest possible date.

It includes the Board of Health (BOH), the Council on Aging (COA), Veteran's Services, the Housing Commission, and the Minuteman Home Care Membership. Key Issues • The reduction in the Board of Health budget is due primarily to certain health services now being provided under a contract with the Town of Concord. The Council on Aging budget growth is for salary increases only, items are identical to the FY97 budget. All other line Warrant Articles None. 17 Library FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change $472 $495 $516 4.1% General Information The Lincoln Public Library is open fifty-seven hours weekly offering regular library services and many special programs for children and adults. Its membership in the Minuteman Library Network opens to the Lincoln community an extensive array of books and recordings held by other member libraries. The Friends of the Lincoln Public Library, a volunteer organization, supports the Library by orchestrating special events and providing private funds to augment the budget. A State-mandated requirement that the Lincoln Public Library spend 19% of its annual budget on the purchase of books has recently been challenged unsuccessfully by our Librarian and the Library Trustees. They believe the book needs of our Town can be met with an expenditure of about $75,000, approximately 15% of the budget, not the $98,000 required by the State. Meeting the State requirement for books within the Library's current operating budget would require a serious reduction in staff time and open hours. Key Issues • The State may rescind certification of the Lincoln Town Library for failing to satisfy the requirement that we spend 19% of our annual budget on books. • Loss of certification may have two consequences: a) forfeiture of $13,000 in State Aid and b) potential loss of inter-library and reciprocal borrowing privileges. • The Library will continue to increase its book budget ($67,500 in FY98, up by 21%) and will redouble its efforts to effect a change in State requirements. • Our Librarian and Trustees believe that we should not buy books at the expense of service to the Town (open hours), and they will continue to lobby for their position with State officials. Warrant Articles #29 Staff Work Area $15,000 Renovate staff work area. 18 Recreation FY96 Actual FY97 Budqet FY98 Proposed FY97/FY98 Chanae RD $195 CC $ 16 $218 $ 19 $222 $ 19 1 .7% 2.7% General Information The Recreation Department provides numerous and diverse activities for Lincoln citizens of all ages and manages Town recreational facilities such as the tennis courts and the Codman Pool. It operates a Town summer camp and oversees the scheduling of facilities on the Lincoln School campus for after hours activities. Its paid staff is supervised by a full-time Director and a volunteer Recreation Committee. The Celebrations Committee produces the Fourth of July festivities, and sponsors outdoor concerts and other events. The Recreation Department is almost fully supported by user fees. Over the last five years, fees collected from program participants have accounted for between 84% and 100% of its operating budgets. The annual net cost to the Town over this period has ranged from $697 to $28,468. The Department's recent move to the Lincoln School campus and the availability of new space provided by the School Building Project has permitted a significant expansion of recreational services and programs. The Celebrations Committee is also largely self- supporting. Key Issues • The Department is considering how best to use newly available facilities on the Lincoln school campus to expand its offerings to the Town. • Town playing fields are now being refurbished and expanded with a two year investment program. Warrant Articles #12 Ballfield Restoration and Maintenance $135,000 Phase 2 of 2 years. 19 Debt Service FY96 Actual FY97 FY98 Budaet Proposed FY97/FY98 Chanae $1 ,446 $1 ,799 $2,325 29.2% General Information Debt service represents principal and interest payments on the Town's outstanding loan obligations. The increase for FY98 reflects debt incurred to fund the School Building and Public Safety Building projects approved by previous Town Meetings. The $2,325 million figure in the FY98 budget represents the peak in debt service on current bonding. Our debt service burden reflects payments not only for the recent School and Public Safety Building construction, but also for numerous other projects approved over the years by Lincoln citizens. Substantial payments on debt arising from the Flint's Field purchase and the Library renovation and expansion, for example, are still being made. Information on debt service obligations appears in the detailed budget at the end of this report. As indicated above, debt service reaches maximum levels in the proposed FY98 budget and will remain at approximately the same level in FY99. At this point, completion of payments on the Library (FY98) and Flints' Fields purchase (FYOO) will begin to reduce this burden. As the State's share of the School Building project, Lincoln will receive $681 ,036 per year over the life of the School construction bonds that will be applied to defray debt service expenses. Even with this reimbursement, however, debt service for the Town's numerous projects and purchases has a significant impact on the Town budget, and upon the tax rate through approved debt exclusions. 20 Pensions and Insurance FY96 FY97 FY98 FY97/FY98 Actual Budget Proposed Change Middlesex County Pension $409 $439 $473 7.6% Health and Other Ins. $910 $986 $943 -4.4% Prop, and Indem. Ins. $105 $149 $150 0.7% General Information The Town is required by law to contribute annually to the Middlesex County Retirement Fund. Several health insurance plans are also offered by the Town to its employees. In addition, the Town provides unemployment and life insurance and makes employee-related FICA payments. The Town's share of contributions to these programs and benefits is determined by federal and state law, personnel by-laws and/or contract negotiations with the Town's unions. Property and Indemnity Insurance includes workers' compensation, liability insurance, and the bonding of appropriate Town officials. Key Issues • Restructuring of employee health insurance plans approved in recent collective bargaining may bring further reductions in insurance costs. 21 Water Department FY96 Actual $316 FY97 Budget FY98 Proposed $382 $400 FY97/FY98 Change 4.8% General Information The Water Department operating budget is funded through water fees. Surplus from operations is used to reduce debt incurred to construct the contact chamber. The FY96 surplus of $475,000 will reduce the principal balance of debt from $733,000 to $258,000. This reduction is proposed under Warrant Article #9. Key Issues The Water Department will continue to place a high priority on adequate staffing and training in order to maintain the Town's waiver of the State's filtration requirement. : Warrant Articles #9 Debt Payment $475,000 Reduce debt from $733,000 to $258,000. 22 CT3 0) OS O C n 03 XL 03 O CD or o^ J2 5H O <l) Q _l * ffl DC K « Q c 03 XL O CMCOOOOi-NOONTtlOS miridcoi^dcM^T^dcM WON^OOWlfiOOlfii-O N^COTf^-CDOOCOtDTfO) in" cvT m" co" o>" cd c\T -<*" co" co" co" ^r" in" in" in" co" co" cd" cd" cd" cd" co" w w J \JJ \JJ \JJ WJ WJ Ww VJ W J \f J v.

Given under our hands this third day of March in the year of our Lord one-thousand nine-hundred ninety-seven. Rosamond P. Delori / JohnS. Kerr II Peter C. Sugar, Chairman SELECTMEN OF LINCOLN 45 Glossary, continued Local Revenue (Receipts) Local revenue or local receipts includes special fees and taxes other than real estate tax. By far the largest component of our local revenue is the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax, which represents more than 30% of local receipts. Other line items are penalties and interest on taxes and excise (20%), and various fees such as those for dog licenses (12.5%). New Growth Proposition 2 1 /2 allows the Town to increase its levy limit annually by an amount based on the value of new construction and other growth in the tax base that is not the result of revaluation. This provision allows the Town to respond to new growth that may result in additional municipal costs; for example, the construction of new housing may result in increased school enrollments and therefore higher education costs. New growth becomes part of the levy limit base, which increases at the rate of 2.5% each year. Override Proposition 2 1 /2 allows a town to assess taxes in excess of the annual 2.5% increase plus new growth by passing an override. When an override is passed, the levy limit for the year is increased by the amount of the override. This results in a permanent increase in the Town's levy limit. An override requires a majority vote of the Selectmen to be placed on a ballot. A majority vote of the electorate is needed for approval. Reserve Fund This is a fund, established by the annual Town Meeting, which is under the control of the Finance Committee and from which transfers may be made for unforeseen expenditures. The limit on the size of this fund is 5% of the tax levy of the current fiscal year. SFSB This refers to State Aid available to the Town through the State Facilities Siting Board (SFSB) as partial reimbursement for the capital and interest costs of our school construction project. The Town will receive SFSB payments over the next eleven years, the time remaining on the school construction debt. Stabilization Fund The stabilization fund is a reserve account which allows the Town to put aside money in anticipation of future expenses. This helps the Town limit its tax rate increases, even in years of extraordinary expenses. The Town may appropriate into this fund in any year an amount no more than 10% of the previous year's levy. Tax Rate The tax rate is the amount of tax charged by the Town expressed in terms of a unit of the tax base: for example, $13.90 per $1000 of the assessed valuation of taxable property.
